A Florida-based professional basketball league, the FBA provides a development, branding and exposure platform for athletes, referees and other individuals seeking to further their professional basketball careers.
“In addition to increasing the skill of the players, I would like to see the league develop a Hoops Life program that fuses basketball and life skills,” said FBA CEO Mark King.
“With this type of program, players have an opportunity to do something outside of basketball. So, once their basketball career has ended, they will have something sustainable.”
To build on what King said about the FBA being more than just a basketball league, Stars’ owner-player Williams said, “We are a community-driven organization that wants to do anything we can to give back to the community that raised us. We are open to doing any speaking engagements at any school in Brevard County.”
“The level of play in the FBA is high,” said Williams. “In the short time I have been playing, I have been offered four opportunities to play professionally – two in Germany, one in Canada, and one in Ireland.”
Now in its fifth season, the FBA currently has six teams in the league including the Florida Flight (Orlando), Tampa Bay Saints, Palm Beach Knights, Miami Midnites, Native Pride (Miami) and the Space Coast Stars.
