A Little About the Real ABA Basketball Division


Two Basketball leagues, the ABA and the NBA were engaged in a fierce competition for fans, players and media attention. This struggle went on for nine seasons and only one league would survive.

In 1976 the NBA games was considered conservative and boring.
The ABA was the colorful, outlaw league known for the 3 point shot, the red, white and blue basketball, flashy clothes and the very biggest hair. The ABA games were thrilling and filled with wacky antics. With their platform shoes, bell bottoms, farmer overalls and Afros these ABA athletes reflected the wild and crazy 1970s.

The stakes were higher than ever in 1976, because the "Basketball Wars" had come to an end, and only 4 Teams would be chosen from the ABA to be absorbed by the more powerful NBA .The rest of the ABA players would disappear forever and become just a HISTORICAL FOOTNOTE! (Except for this movie)!

"The American Basketball Association was on the verge of collapse.

***


But in Our Film . . . . .


It's the era of FUN and Wacky,
As they say: "It's a whole new ball game".
See the wildly outrageous costumes of the ABA players and their mascots that were actually worn at these games.

Our film takes place in 1976, the era of "Big Hair", (Afros, real and not so real), as well as Long Hair, denim and Polyester. And then there are the Cheerleaders in Bright, Red Shiny, platform shoes that made the woman as tall as the players!
