NATIONAL IN-LINE BASKETBALL LEAGUE: HOOPS ON WHEELS
Published October 31, 1994
"Roller basketball -- a combination of basketball and in- line skating -- is taking off on the East Coast," according to the most recent issue of INSIDE SPORTS. '76 Olympic Basketball Gold Medalist and Former Sonic Tom LaGuarde started the National In-Line Basketball League (NIBBL) and has spent his time regulating and promoting the "burgeoning" sport. NIBBL branches now exist in Baltimore, Toronto, and Washington, DC. Leagues are also being formed in CA, NJ, and Puerto Rico, and skaters from Japan and France have shown interest in the new sport. NIBBL is scheduled to play during half-time at a number of NBA games this season and at the NBA All-Star weekend in February (INSIDE SPORTS, December '94).
