    If your shop covers the ABA and the team from your town is playing on the road against the Arkansas Aeros, I can help you out. Just let me know and we can talk.

    OK, can you cover the...wait, they just folded. No Tim Hardaway just bought them. No wait, they folded again. Forget it.

    Do people actually staff those ABA games?

    Had the chance to cover one ABA game. I get there during pre-game warm-ups. A player dunks on a very old goal and it comes crashing down on a ballboy. While the kid was taken to the hospital, he was not seriously injured.

    The arena only had two goals and couldn't repair the broken one, so the game was cancelled.

    Five replies to an ABA stringer thread? The poor guy that started this is going to be excited, then quite disappointed, when he logs back on here.

    He'll get the same feeling every morning when he wonders if his own team folded up shop overnight.

    I covered an ABA practice last week.

    Nothing says, "Hey, we're a professional league!" like having a team practice in a Police Athletic League gym.

    Covered a game once in the reincarnation of the old Eastern League (which has been through so many name changes and reorganizations I have no idea what it is called now -- but it is not unlike this new ABA -- part-time, weekend players, playground style ball, no defense, lots of dunks) .... anyhow, true story ... a guy grabbed a rebound while falling out of bounds and ended up falling through a door into the concession stand.
