Report: Billups, Pierce, and Wall to join new Basketball League?

Impact Basketball is reportedly planning to organize a league in Las Vegas comprised entirely of pro basketball players.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s a short term solution.

Reports indicate Impact Basketball is organizing a league for NBA players displaced by the lockout, and games are slated to begin in Las Vegas for mid September.

Chauncey Billups, Paul Pierce, and John Wall are a few of the 70 NBA players who could make their way to Sin City for a run.

This seems well intentioned, however, no start up league will change or move owners off their position of a hard-cap and 50-50 split of Basketball Related Income.

And while Impact Basketball may satisfy fans and players desire for hoops, it hopefully won’t distract all involved from drafting a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
