Birth of the Premiere Basketball League
After leaving the ABA in early 2007, the RazorSharks owners created the Premiere Basketball League. The league began play in January '08 with 11 teams, and plans to expand. The PBL's first commissioner is former Houston Rockets point guard and NBA on TNT analyst Kenny Smith.
The RazorSharks finished the 2006-2007 regular season at 24-6, and undefeated at home. This extended their home win streak to 35 consecutive wins (and counting), the best consecutive home record of any Rochester professional sports team, basketball or otherwise! Unfortunately, due to frustrations with the league and lack of finances of other teams, the RazorSharks dropped out of the playoffs, and out of the ABA.
Highlights of the ABA SharkBall experience included trying to understand ABA rules like the "3D Rule" (which adds an extra point to baskets scored in certain situations), and watching the LadySharks dance.

2008-05-23 09:42:43 Games are fun, but it doesnt feel like being at an NBA game. So be prepared for that. Its kind of like being at a high school game with really good players. I always enjoy catching a game here and there. The season is VERY short, so dont miss it. —MrRochester
