Also, click the link below to read the Petition sent to the NBA and the link below that is an outstanding article by Gregg Doyel of the Indianapolis Star on the plight of this retired American Basketball Association players.

College All-Americans and ABA Champions Cannon and Netolicky discuss the ABA Pension Crisis!!

May 17th, 2017

La Salle Explorer and ABA Champion Larry Cannon and ABA Champion Bob Netolicky join us to discuss the plight of the retired ABA basketball player...... There are only 149 left...... We Lost George Irvine and Skeeter Harley Swift just recently...

 

The ABA players from the past have been left behind by the NBA! The ABA (American Basketball Association) turned the NBA into the success it is today. $60 per year of service for pension, so if you played three years, that's $180 per month for your pension! I don't know about you but that doesn't cover very much! The NBA gets $2,000 per year of service! This is wrong, listen to an abbreviated oral version of the petition that was sent to the NBA April 5, 2017. As of today May 15th the NBA responded that they were not interested in helping these players. there are 149 ABA players left who are in bad health and poor financial situations! The NBA has dropped the ball! Remember the NBA Motto "NBA Cares"? About what????? Spread the word the NBA is wrong in not to help the ones who changed the game! Below is an article was written by Gregg Doyel from the Indianapolis Star concerning these left behind players and below that click the other link for the full document of the Petition for benefits!

March 30th, 2017

John Gipson seen on the right in the photo joins us to discuss the dominating Crispus Attucks Flying Tigers! Last Saturday the Crispus Attucks Tigers closed a 58 year title drought by winning the 2017 3A Indiana High School Basketball State Championship! John Gipson along with a few other Attucks Legends were there to talk to the team and cheer them on to victory. When you discuss the first all black state championship team in the United States, jealousy and racism are a part of that history. John discusses that along with many other stories (including stories of the best player to play Indiana high school basketball - Oscar Robertson) of playing high school basketball for one of the most dominating high school basketball teams of all time!!!
