Obscure Basketball News

Chinooks starters Day and Johnson sign with Mex-LNPB

The Portland Chinooks announced today that Chinooks starters Robert Day and Byron Johnson have signed with Algodoneros de La Comarca in Torreon, Mexico of the LNPB, a new professional league in Mexico, founded through the Mexican Basketball Federation.

I had the opportunity to watch both Byron Johnson and Robert Day play for the late Portland Reign of the reconstituted ABA and the Portland Chinooks of the IBL. Johnson is really close to being NBA ready. He is a great player to watch and he knows how to score points. Robert Day is a monster point guard with the type of hustle and effort I haven't seen since the Jerome Kersey days of the Blazers. I wish both of them luck in international play and hope an NBA shot is in their futures.

Just a comment to demonstrate that non-political posts can get comments.

So the object of the game is to get the ball to go through the hoop thingy that has a net thingy on it? Does it matter which way - up or down - that it goes through?
