Vermont defeated San Diego 87-82 in the finals of the ABA’s play off tournament this morning.
Congrats to a Vermont team that was ravaged by injuries and still beat some very good teams to retain their title. As much as I think the ABA is a terrible league, there are a number of very good teams and very good athletes in the ABA and the ‘Heaves and their fans should be proud of the team. In a lot of ways I think that Vermont and the Frost Heaves are exactly what you could dream for in a minor league basketball team.
The only thing that disapoints me about the Rainmen leaving the ABA is that there’s a chance that we will end up a league without the ‘Heaves.
