Indianapolis, IN. The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced that it will add an ABA team in Modesto, California which will begin play in December. According to Joe Newman, ABA CEO, "We are very pleased to welcome Saber Knott to the ABA. Not only is he a very astute businessman with a great basketball background, but Capt. Knott also served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan with four years in the U.S. Marine Corps and ten years in the U.S. Army. A very special person indeed."
A graduate of Indiana University in business administration and accounting, he has an MBA in Administration and is the owner of five laundromats and three Sport End Zone stores in Modesto. "I have seven years of strong marketing and sales," said Knott. "I believe in always giving the public its weight in gold and satisfaction. I want to make Modesto a power of capitol and dominating the full proof on the court. I will use my talents and background to make us a champion caliber team on the court and in the community. That's my pledge and commitment. We will be one of the best operations in the ABA." For more information, call 209 404 7253 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.abalive.com.
And we believe it is better to have critics and people who care than not to have interest at all. Joe Newman 6/30/05
I never said the ABA had the greatest numbers regarding retention of teams. OldSchoolBaller (neither did we )
The ABA has tarnished minor league professional basketball throughout this country Ed Krinsky 2/15/06
We are now making some adjustments to our schedule - Joe Newman 10/9/08 in perpetuity
Is this the work of Q? Is he getting some say, and making changes? Lets see how long it can last... I hope it does last because he seems like a good guy that could help out, IF he is given a good amount of power, but we all know Joe pretty well...

ABAish:Not Playing 99% of your games but you satisfy your self less than 50% Lack Of Promotion Of Your Team, Not Paying your players, Playing in a High School with non regulation lines or Half Court, Playing with Wal-Mart Uniforms, Playing with Mismatched Socks, Posting lies about your league, Posting things that are not basketball or really league related, Calling others Unethical and Immoral, Being Joe Newman.500 Charcters suck.
The ABA is on the right track and attracting the right kinds of owners.
The quality of MBA's and Captains don't include the ability to not get hoodwinked.
This guy Knott should have said, "Joe lets delay the announcement two weeks until I can get a graphic designer to put together a logo and allow me time to get a website set up" at the very least.
"If games are missed, it hurts no one" ...... ABA CEO Joe Newman 2/9/09
Due to numerous threats of legal action from certain people.......all of the above is my opinion only and it should be noted that I have never invested in the ABA. It is simply one mans opinion.
