April 1, 2008  (Ottawa): Julius Erving Signs on as Commissioner
"I feel like when I was just out of college and
playing with the Virginia Squires in the old ABA," said
Julius Erving...newly appointed commissioner of the
16-team Canadian Professional Basketball League.
"You were scared and excited at the same time. You saw the league grow and the players grow with it."
With the short 30-game season compressed into 10 weeks and with only eight players per team, Erving beleives that the National Basketball Association will be keeping close tabs on the CPBL.
"The scouts know that these kids will be in shape...not sitting the bench and watching the game. And the players know they only have 10 weeks to strut their stuff so they will be playing all out."

April 1, 2008(Ottawa): The CPBL high school, college and European draft will be held May 1st, 2007 in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
All team managers and coaches will be in attendance
and the draft update will be updated at this site as it happens.
Several USA and Canadian high school hoopsters have declared their interest including 8-foot-4 phenom C.J. McTipp from Anzac High.
McTipp averaged 39.4 ppg and 28.0 rpg while shooting 79% from the field.

Montreal Maniac discover 9 -foot wonder
From Ukraine Jozef Handsfurther.
The Montreal Maniac have found a man to whom is
believed to be the world's tallest human. From Ukraine
Jozef Handsfurther standing 9 feet even (check photo
section). is, 23 years-of-age and has lived from the age of five until now in a monestary.
Hidden from all modern conviences, the quiet giant has not seen a television or heard a radio for the last 18 years. He does not know of the sport of basketball but has a reach of 12-foot 11 inches....which should come in handy for rebounding and dunking.
Scout Helmut Overguard, who discovered the hidden gem, notes that Handsfurther was measured with a 24 inch vertical which gives him an overall reach of 14 feet 11 inches well above the top of the backboard.
His conditioning is unknown but since you cannot teach height the NBA will no doubt be looking on come CPBL tipoff.
