Liberty Basketball Association

Just brainstorming some ideas for a possible basketball thread that starts in 1978-79 after the NBA and ABA both disband due to the bitter battles for talent and widespread drug scandals.

The first year or two will pretty much consist of 21 teams.

The schedule would work like this:
One teams plays the other 20 teams four times each; twice at home, twice on the road.

CONFIRMED
Division A
Boston
New York
Philadelphia
Washington

Division B
Chicago
Cleveland
Detroit
Milwaukee

Division C
Denver
Houston
San Antonio

Division D
Los Angeles
Portland
San Francisco
Seattle

In the running for the remaining six spots to reach 21 teams.
- Atlanta, GA
- Buffalo, NY
- Cincinnati, OH
- Dallas, TX
- Indianapolis, IN
- Kansas City, MO
- Louisville, KY
- Minneapolis, MN
- New Orleans, LA
- Phoenix, AZ
- Pittsburgh, PA
- Salt Lake City, UT
- St. Louis, MO
- San Diego, CA

Re: Liberty Basketball Association

The six cities as chosen in a Wheel of Names draw:

Dallas, TX
Salt Lake City, UT
New Orleans, LA
St. Louis, MO
Cincinnati, OH
Pittsburgh, PA

And thus the alignment is as follows

Pacific
Los Angeles
Portland
Salt Lake
San Francisco
Seattle

Midwest
Dallas
Denver
Houston
New Orleans (Court Jesters?)
San Antonio

Central
Chicago
Cincinnati
Cleveland
Detroit (Muscles? Grooves?)
Milwaukee
St. Louis

Atlantic
Boston
New York
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Washington (Federals?)

Next thing I will need are the nicknames. Maybe four or five for each market that I can put into a Wheel of Names spin.
