CBA Commissioner Tom Valdiserri: "Sales of professional sports merchandise has exploded over the last five-to-10 years, it is time that the CBA claim its share of the business. ... [In two year] we hope to have the market saturated with our products." Valdiserri said the league will market new logos, nicknames and colors (CBA).
