In order to ensure that the ABA league is not TOO THIN,
The East and West Conferences will operate as their own independent league, but will play a regular WHAT IF schedule.
The two conferences will operate as their own leagues as far as players and the draft, but of course will share the season schedule format.
The two drafts will be held simultaneously.
Players will be exclusive within the conference. There will be two Dr. J’s and two Artis Gilmores, and Dan Issel will be on two teams.
Dr. J Issel, A. Gilmore and the rest of the players can be on only one team in the East and on only One team in the West.
Example: The Eastern team picking first has access to any player, and selects Dr. J; The Western team picking first has access to any player and they are also able to pick Dr. J; The second team from the East selects Artis Gilmore, while the second team from the West selects whoever they want ( Mel Daniels?)...
The league that forced a Free Wheeling - Wide Open brand of Basketball on the Country is here.
The ABA gave birth to numerous HOFers and legends as well as the three point line,
and a much needed jump in salaries for professional basketball players.
So get out your Bell Bottoms, Dust off those old Disco records, and plug in the ol’ Lava Lamp –
The league that brought you the HUGE AFRO, not to mention the slam dunk contest is ready.
So are tales of fist fights, drug abuse and wasted talent.
