Remember when the ABA was going to buy out the NBL, they fought tooth and nail. It would have been good to have one or the other but now I’ll throw my why I’m an ABA leaning rider
ABA, for profit business, only survives if it makes money, only makes money by inovating, and growing to draw more riders.
NBL, non-profit orginization (foriegn aid workers come to mind), needs only to make a certain amount every year to survive, not really beholding to anyone to make more money, no motivation to grow the sport, as long as their peice of the pie is there.
My reasoning, take it for what it’s worth
