The American Basketball Association has recently taken residence in Rhode Island.
The Providence Sky Chiefs are the latest to join the 76 team league. The Sky Chiefs have a dozen men on their roster hoping to take their game play to the next level. Former NBA players like Dr. J, Marvin Barnes, and many others started their careers in the ABA. The team is motivated by stories like these to turn their ABA career into one overseas or in the NBA.
The Sky Chiefs have recruited players from all of the state, country, and even the world to represent Rhode Island throughout the season. Seeing as it’s their first year, the Sky Chiefs play at various locations throughout RI.
Their next home game is Saturday, January 31st at 9pm at the Pizzotola Center on the brown University campus.
