The Central Basketball Association (CBA) welcomes everyone to the continuance of a fresh concept in the world of minor league basketball. Strong, financially sound teams. Online video rebroadcasts of league games. Detailed & accurate team and individual statistics. Strict adherence to National Basketball Association (NBA) rules. Taking advantage of technological resources through a user-friendly website and mobile-application. Playing in front of larger media markets. Working directly with agents and scouts as a genuine bridge for players to get overseas contracts in Canada, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and South America. All led under a strong corporate-style management structure.
These attributes one will not find apparent in any other minor league basketball league or organization. Until now. Welcome to the Central Basketball Association.
