Minor League Basketball Loses League

The CBA has "abbreviated" the current season, deciding to hold the finals a month and a half before the season was scheduled to end.  Yikes!  The CBA began in 1946, though I'm not sure how it will recover from this.  Wondering which players will make the jump to the D-League.

Here's the official release on the CBA website..

ALBANY, NY (February 2, 2009) – The Continental Basketball Association today announced that they have abbreviated the remainder of the 2008-09 season. The regular season will conclude on February 3. The CBA will then hold a three-game series in Albany with the top two teams in the league standings facing off, the Albany Patroons and the Lawton-Fort Sill Cavalry, to determine the 2008-09 CBA Champion. 

The CBA Finals will start on Thursday, February 5 with Game 1. Game 2 will take place on Saturday, February 7 and if necessary, Game 3 will be on Sunday, February 8. All games will take place in Albany at the Washington Avenue Armory. Game time for all three games is 7:00 PM EST. 

“Due to the ever increasing problems with the economy, the CBA has decided to abbreviate the remainder of the regular season,” stated CBA Commissioner Dennis Truax. “This is the best course of action for the CBA to take at this time. The economy has affected us all and we are now directly seeing the fallout from that. We will be holding an owners meeting during the finals as we look to restructure the CBA and come back next season stronger than ever.”
