HORNELL BULLS LASTEST ENTRY INTO ABA
The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced that the league has added the Hornell Bulls to its record-setting expansion. The team is owned by Lamont Alston, owner of the ABA Elmira Eagles and will compete in the Northeast Division. 'Lamont is a very special person with a remarkable background,' stated ABA CEO. 'His bio is worthy of a book with some great experiences in a varied career encompassing business, sports and entertainment.'
Lamont started in the music industry at a young age traveling the world with Rapper Az and was featured on his 9 Lives album. He then signed an independent music contract and released his own studio album before getting into boxing, training at the famous Gleason Boxing Gym in Brooklyn, NY. Turning professional, he moved on to win several world titles. Following his retirement, he opened several businesses in Elmira NY prior to forming the ABA Elmira Eagles. 'Our plan is to make this team just as great as we made the Elmira Eagles,' added Alston. ''We are going to give the fans of Hornell the highest level of basketball talent we can provide. I have great expectations from both teams.' Alston also serves as Co-Division Chairman of the Northeast Division.
