ABA Press Release: 2015-2016 ABA All Star Roster


Indianapolis, IN.  The American Basketball Association (ABA) today released the names of players selected for the ABA All Star Game to be played in Baltimore, MD on Friday, April 22nd.  “This was the toughest year ever to select the All Star teams,” stated ABA Co-founder Joe Newman.  “With nearly 90 teams and 1000 players, the talent in the ABA is truly amazing.  I have no doubt that these players and many others in the league could give any professional sports league in the world a run for their money and that includes the NBA, D-League and top international teams.  Too bad that they have turned down challenges for our All Star teams to compete against them.  It would probably “bust the bubble” that they have a corner on the top talent.  They don’t by a long shot.”
