SO while in the ABA, Nelson and Tucker are starting up the ABL. WHat a sham show they put on.
Truax doing all the talking, maybe I counted 6-8 people on the call. An owner from a town in mexico, someone from Texas, Nelson from SE Texas.
Truax taling about , 50k to enter league, 100K bond, 75 k per year maintenance fee to league office per team. Heres where the comedy kicks in...Nelson and tucker asking Truax questions like they are very interested...LOL. what a joke , this was a Joe N production all the way. Nothing will come of this...and the Best line of the whole conference call>>>> Tucker and Nelson saying that when the NBA does their lock-out..they will have all the NBA talent to sign and people will watch the ABL.
Very Shotty conference call and with truax in charge your guaranteed a failure at best ( see USBL, CBA). Nelson will probably own the 4 teams.
Surprised that Joe N hasnt bounced SE TExas out, but then again Nelson is paying for the rec league championship.

Nothing much except trying to fix Cres statistics gameday software problem.
Getting dates in for play-offs deadline approaching. Reminding a few teams about supplying game day CD to the visiting team right after the game.[/quote]Thanks a lot!
To be fair, minor league basketball has never been a very well cat in this country, and it's still going on. He hasn't "destroyed" it, but he has made it difficult for anyone to do business at it.
Absolutely 100% true and verifiable.Hes a liar. We know that.
Certainly hasn't made it easy for anyone who wants to do it the right way.The damage to players not being paid, vendors money taken, season ticket holder money dissapearing, promises of paying for this and that from Joes mouth that didnt happen,We ALL know Joe has scorched the minor league basketball arena.
The thing is...there don't seem to be a lot of people who want to do it the right way. And there seems to be no lack of former ballers/hip-hop promoters who want to call themselves pro basketball team owners willing to pony up without doing due diligence on the man and the league. Caveat emptor.
Crony, probably. Joe's old, I'm not sure he has the energy.I dont believe Paul R when he says OLD fool BAller is pulling our legs with his posts. His posts smell to much like Joe or one of his cronies.
My guess would be Chichester, given that he has demonstrated the propensity to post here, to be relentless in the face of overwhelming evidence that what he's saying is ludicrous, to be vehemently aggressive towards others, and to be unable to spell.
Except that they don't know who he is either.
[quote=""OldSchoolBaller""]It seems like A1's goal in life was to bring down the ABA.[/quote]
Probably not his only goal, but he's made no pretensions about wanting Joe to close up shop.
[quote=""OldSchoolBaller""]Now I see A1 is bashing the ABL and the ABL hasn't even started yet.[/quote]
I am curious about that myself, honestly.
[quote=""OldSchoolBaller""]What business does A1 have eavesdropping on a ABL conference call anyway?[/quote]
None. But it's what he does.
[quote=""OldSchoolBaller""]You know A1 is NOT interested in starting a team anywhere.[/quote]
Neither am I. So am I still allowed to talk?
[quote=""OldSchoolBaller""]A1's sole purpose is to bash, smear and attempt to destroy any minor league basketball team that is NOT the PBL.[/quote]
Nope. He's had comments about other leagues but until the ABL stuff kept the negativity primarily to the ABA.
[quote=""OldSchoolBaller""]I wonder why? A1 you have been EXPOSED for what you are and your agenda.[/quote]
A1 hasn't been exposed. People have drawn conclusions about him, but no one seems to know definitively who he is or why he cares.
