The kankakee Soldiers hosted the weekend event at their new Sports complex and it was a good turnout of teams, coaches, and fans.
There were three referees for each game, announcers, music, scorekeepers concession stands etc.... well organized.
I only wish they could find a way to pay the players and coaches. It would be a really strong league if they could come up with sponsorship for player salaries.
One thing, they seem to have some staying power.
I agree with One Way, when you don't pay players and coaches, it does bear a resemblence to aau or something of that nature.
Can we find one rich guy who loves basketball and will fund an entire league? Whats Bill Gates passion? Maybe Jack Nicholson? better yet, R. Kelly the singer, he loves to play, he can be a player owner, If it works in the wba, it can work in the ibl.
