BREAKING NEWS: JN Enterprises Purchases Rights to the Supreme Basketball Alliance

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It appears that Charlotte, North Carolina is quickly becoming the center of the sports world.  Already the headquarters for the High Impact Football League, the Queen City appears destined to be the home of another sports league.  JN Enterprises, Inc., a Charlotte based holdings company, has just purchased the rights to the Supreme Basketball Alliance (SBA).  The SBA is an upstart professional basketball league that has been in business for a couple of seasons and currently is headquartered in Boston, MA.  While originally considered a joint venture, the owners of the SBA were looking for an influx of capital to help the league reach new heights.  Therefore they put the league up for sale with the owners relinquishing the joint venture concept and selling the league as a single entity.

Enter Founder and CEO of JN Enterprises, Inc., Justin Pichey.  His company made quick contact with the league once the news broke that the league was up for sale.  Both sides moved for a quick sale and finished closing on the purchase of the SBA just last night, though the purchase price is unknown at this time.  There is a news conference scheduled for later today where Mr. Pichey is scheduled to speak from JN Enterprises, Inc. headquarters.

BREAKING NEWS: JN Enterprises, Inc. CEO names himself SBA Commissioner

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As reported earlier, JN Enterprises, Inc. purchased the rights to the upstart Supreme Basketball Alliance.  The CEO, Justin Pichey, just held a press conference at the company's headquarters.  The press conference lasted a total of 26 minutes, but was filled with some pertinent information that fans and the sports world as  a whole will want to know. 

The biggest announcement is the fact that Mr. Pichey named himself the Commissioner of the league, which from what I'm told, is fully supported by the owners.  As I speculated in my report earlier today, Mr. Pichey announced that the league's headquarters will indeed move from Boston to Charlotte, which the city should be excited about as the combination of HIFL and SBA will be a big economic boon for the region.  To commemorate the change in ownership, the league has re-branded itself with a new league logo.  Mr. Pichey announced that in an effort to move the league to new heights, the owners have committed to hiring established General Managers to help guide their teams to sustainable success which will allow the owners to focus on their own personal ventures.  Mr. Pichey mentioned that interviews for General Managers could begin as soon as next week as the leagues new season will begin in a couple of weeks.

This is an exciting time for basketball fans and more information is sure to come over the coming days and weeks.  STAY TUNED!

BREAKING NEWS: FIRST EVER SBA GM IS HIRED!!

The Fort Worth Stars and owner Matt McNaughty have hired the first ever Supreme Basketball Alliance General Manager.  Mr. McNaughty issued the following statement:

"The Fort Worth Stars are pleased to announce that we are hiring the one and only Thad Bone!!  The guy showed he had some real balls in his interview.  If you ask me, he could probably take those balls on the road with me and the Magic Mike: XXX crew.  His name could be Bad to the Bone...or simply Mr. Bone.  However, I hired him to run this team so that's what I want him to focus on.  Mr. Bone's contract is for 3 years, the first two season guaranteed and the third year is a team option.  We are pleased to welcome Thad to the team."

BREAKING NEWS: MARIO THURSTON TRADED TO CHEYENNE

Charlotte, N.C. -- The SBA offseason has seen some activity up to this point, but it appears that right before the draft things are picking up a lot more.  The Fort Worth Stars have traded the highly productive Mario Thurston to the Cheyenne Bison for Deshawn Cummings and the Bison's #3 pick in the upcoming draft.  It appears that GM Thad Bone might be hitting the reset button as the rumor mill is buzzing that he's not done trading.

BREAKING NEWS: CRAWFISH LOOK TO RETAIN BROOKHART ON MAX CONTRACT

Charlotte, N.C. -- Cory Brookhart, arguably the best overall player in the Supreme Basketball Alliance, will potentially remain with the Charleston Crawfish.  A restricted free agent, GM Lucas didn't leave any doubt he wanted the superstar to remain on the team and didn't give a team a chance to force his hand by letting Brookhart agree to an offer sheet with another team. The Crawfish general manager opened up the wallet as the deal is reported to be for 4 years, $22 million per season and $3 million PR per season.  There has been speculation that at least two teams would have offered Brookhart the max to see if GM Lucas was going to match, but GM Lucas beat everyone to the punch and offered a max deal within the opening minutes of free agency.

BREAKING NEWS: STARS REPORTEDLY MAKE BROOKHART AN OFFER

BREAKING NEWS: IT'S OFFICIAL.  BROOKHART WILL REMAIN A CRAWFISH

Charlotte, N.C. -- All-world point guard Cory Brookhart will re-sign with the Charleston Crawfish.  Despite multiple offers, Brookhart never signed an offer sheet with another team and decided that he will call Charleston home for another four seasons.  His agent, Nigel Falls, had this to say, "Cory is from North Carolina and decided that staying close to his family was important to him and was a major factor in his decision.  He is also willing to give GM Lucas a shot at building the Crawfish into a perennial contender.  He is excited to get back to work."

My sources tell me the final contract details are 4 years, $22 million per season and $5.5 million PR per season.

BREAKING NEWS: LONG SIGNS OFFER SHEET WITH RATTLERS!!  WILL GM KIRK MATCH?

Charlotte, N.C. -- GM Black Death, long been known as a GM not shy to spend big, has provided a shockwave throughout the league.  He has loosened up the purse strings once again and has gotten Ales Long to sign an offer sheet for a max contract of 4 years, $22 million per season, and $3 million PR per season.  GM Kirk and the Albuquerque Coyotes have 36 hours to determine if they will match the contract offered by Birmingham.  GM Kirk, known to be on the opposite side of GM BD and a more frugal spender, has the basketball world waiting his decision.

BREAKING NEWS: WOW!!! BURGESS AGREES TO OFFER SHEET WITH SAN DIEGO!!

Charlotte, N.C. -- If the max contract for Ales Long was not enough excitement for you, GM Bennett just umped the ante.  The San Diego Swan general manager has signed restricted free agent Rob Burgess to an offer sheet of 4 years, $15 million per season and $1.5 million PR per season!!  This news will surely send shockwaves through the league and will have other free agents taking notice of the big contracts that have been signed thus far.  GM Bone is on the clock.

BREAKING NEWS: GM BLACK DEATH STRIKES AGAIN!!

Charlotte, N.C. -- GM Black Death is making his presence felt in the Supreme Basketball Alliance.  A day after forcing GM Kirk and the Coyotes match a max contract for Ales Long, which many believed to be overpriced, GM Black Death is forcing to more general managers to decide whether or not they want to open their wallets.  Both Brian Neal and Victor Tahid have signed offer sheets with the Birmingham Rattlers.  Neal's deal is for a reported 4 years $13 million per season, while Tahid's is 3 years worth $10 million per season.

BREAKING NEWS: NORWOOD CHOOSES SHARKS, CITES LOYALTY

Charlotte, N.C. -- Mario Norwood has decided to resume his basketball career in Jacksonville after agreeing to a 2 year deal worth $5 million per season with the Sharks.  When asked why he chose the Sharks over other teams, specifically his former team Charleston, he had this to say;

"I'm a young cat, but my parents always taught me the value of loyalty and I believe GM Gooch and the Jacksonville Sharks embody loyalty.  They've been interested in me from the very beginning.  I enjoyed my time in Charleston, but I didn't hear from them until like day four or five of free agency.  Didn't seem like they really wanted me and I was an afterthought.  But I'm excited about this new move and look forward to stepping on the court in Jacksonville".

BREAKING NEWS: ENTIRE CRAWFISH TEAM SKIPS PRACTICE IN PROTEST!

Charlotte, N.C. -- The entire Charleston Crawfish team skipped practice earlier today in protest of some mistakes General Manager Lucas made.  In case you have not noticed, PR campaigns for Jeremy Peper and Cory Brookhart have been created and distributed with misspellings of both of their names which not only has both players mad, but has the whole team mad.  To make matters worse, Peper has demanded he be traded as soon as possible
