What makes this league…unusual I guess I could say? They will have a list of criteria for playing in the league.
“Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league.”
So basically…Whites only. Yea thats not racist. Don”Moose” Lewis, the commissioner of the AABA, said the reasoning behind the league’s roster restrictions is not racism.
“There’s nothing hatred about what we’re doing,” he said. “I don’t hate anyone of color. But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like.”
“Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch?” he said. “That’s the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction.”
“People will come out and support a product they can identify with. I’m the spoken minority right now, but if people will give us a chance, it’ll work… The white game of basketball, which is essentially a fundamental game, works.”
I assume that John Rocker is being looked at as possible coach (JKing) and that there is truth to the rumors that dunking will be illegal by rule (Maybe JKing).
