#SpotlightSunday: Barack Obama, FIBA + NBA Joining Forces To Launch Africa League

Our forever former President Barack Obama is always up to something amazing. He teamed up with the NBA and FIBA to launch an African league. It will feature 12 teams across Africa, making this a first-ever for the NBA! The new league will be called the Basketball Africa League, or BAL, and is scheduled to play Jan. 2020!

According to a source, “In order to determine which teams will be participating in the venture, the NBA and FIBA are jointly planning to conduct qualification tournaments later this year to identify the 12 teams that would represent several countries — including Angola, Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia. There will be no more than two teams from any single country in the league.”

Obama will also have an “undisclosed” role according the article. Are you excited?
