So is China the new basketball powerhouse? I knew they were growing leaps and bounds, but...this wasn't the World Championship was it? Was it the ABA Championship? By the way teams are folding, maybe it's best to cut the season short and crown Colorado!

[quote=""robster2001""]They had played a two-game trip to Chicago, then four straight home games, before folding.

Couldn't afford the first real road trip, perhaps?[/quote]

...and here I thought that ABA teams could compete easy for the NBA market dollar. :rolleyes:

I wonder what percentage of the Milwaukee population have heard of the Bucks versus, heard of the Blast.

They will just never learn.

I'm sure that the travel (and mold :p ) have a lot to do with Chinas winning streak. Problem is, nobody really knows what kind of rosters China, or the United States teams have (One of Joe's ABA top secrets).

It's hard to compare apples to apples, when no one has ever seen the growth progress of either.

If any Blast hats were ever made, I am sure one can be had cheap now.

"We’ve told the front runners to keep their eyes on the Gulf Coast Flash, Arizona Scorpions, Atlanta Experience, San Diego Sol and several others; they’re very good.” - you've told them, Dick? Just how, exactly, did that conversation go? You didn't think the teams would actually SEE the ones trailing them in your standings? Or do your own teams also ignore your league's press releases, like most of the rest of the basketball world?
