Hope your correct.

The question remains, could this league ever be truly
"continental", or close to it?

I still want to see about 12 teams in two divisions (East and West)
Adios, OSC message boards. (2007-2017)

You know that I'm going to ask you for your source. You're crazy if you think I'm going to take your word for it.

I really don't care what you do. I telling you what is going to happen. Do with it what you wish. I really do not think that Jaren Jackson will be involved, so I know that that hurts you. But as for the info, do with it as you wish.

First I do hope the league comes back, but only if they are operating on budgets that are sustainable. Only the regional leagues have seemed to figure out what it takes to hang around in this bad economy, so I'm not holding my breath that the CBA is ready to get serious about sustainability.

If they start talking league fees even as high as the IBL I'm personally just going to tune them out.

My guess would be the CBA never wanted to go away forever and there has always been talk about finding a way to get back into pro basketball. I'm not tight with any of those guys so I'm really not privy to any of those conversations.

As to your predictions or inside info it is completely legit for people to ask you for a source and completely reasonable for people to dismiss your claim of knowing something (when you don't provide any info). Even if the CBA does come back I don't think that would come to a shock to anyone, and it also doesn't prove you knew anything (because you haven't provided any evidence that you do).

Again, I truly hope they do come back, but for now your remarks get filed away with those annoying preachers and crazy people that tell us the apocalypse is coming. :eek:

My thoughts exactly...just like the PBL had no interest in the Florida Flight, right?

Typical response, BF. I also would like to see the CBA return, though, while I am cautious. I think Minorleaguefan is right on.

I should add that I think it will be a little harder to bring the league back now that DT is now with the PBL, where I feel the remaining teams should consider joining. Remember, the condition that the CBA return was that the current teams find one new team each to bring in. We should know the odds of that happening.

The PBL does not have any interest in the Florida Flight joining the league.
