The basketball community is very familiar with the the way the shoe company’s have cultivated the summer basketball landscape; forming their own leagues that feature sponsored teams.  Antonio Curro, the founder and editor of NY2LAsports.com has followed suit by creating the NY2LA Basketball Association.  The inaugural league is scheduled to feature 76 teams from Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Nebraska, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Indiana that will compete during the live periods throughout the spring and summer.
