Long Island Basketball

Home » Things to Do » Sports » Basketball

Basketball is a popular sport on Long Island, espcially within our local high schools and universities.  Although Long Island lacks its own professional Basketball team, fans flock to Long Island for our NCAA Division I Basketball teams on Long Island.


Additionally, with the introduction of the American Ballplayers Association, amateur basketball is alive and flourishing on Long Island.

Strong Island Sound, ABA - Professional basketball is back on Long Island, ABA style. The original American Basketball Association was considered the maverick or the outlaw league when it went up against the NBA from 1967-1976. The New York Nets were one of the flagship franchises and eventually merged along with three other ABA clubs with the NBA. Julius Erving, Dr. J to most people, was the face of the league and franchise. Local hoops fans had a long drought until the 2005-06 season when that familiar red, white, and blue basketball starting bouncing out east again. The Sound had a very successful inaugural season in the new version of the ABA, which is an independent minor league in its second go-round. A slow start and blistering finish resulted in a Final Four appearance for the upstart club. Finishing the regular season at 16-14 and ranked 13th in the ABA Power Rankings, the Sound defeated the Birmingham Magicians at home by two. They then went to Harlem and ousted the division champion Strongdogs, propelling them to the Great 8 Tournament in Rochester. An intense game that went to double overtime resulted in the Sound knocking off the top seeded Indiana Alleycats and earning the respect of the entire league. Unfortunately the magic ran out after 10 straight wins when they were defeated by the league runner-up, the Southern California Legends.
