The All-American Basketball Alliance hopes to start up in June in 12 cities throughout the U.S. Southeast. According to a press release from the AABA, only players born in the United States of two Caucasian parents are eligible to play.
AABA commissioner Don "Moose" Lewis said the rule isn´t based on hate, but that "white, American-born citizens are in the minority now," and the league lets them play "fundamental basketball" instead of "street-ball" played by "people of color."
Pointing out incidents in the NBA, Lewis asked, "would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch?" The AABA seems to be having trouble getting cities to join up.
