You need to be sitting down for this one...
According to the NBA (buried deep into the article in a single sentence, which is never a good sign):
Two franchises who played in the 2006-07 season (Arkansas RimRockers, Fort Worth Flyers) will not operate during the 2007-08 season.
Yes our favorite D-League franchise is all but dead. Much like when a horrible TV show goes on "extended hiatus" the odds of the Arkansas RimRockers making a triumphant return in 2008-09 is about the same as Amy Winehouse NOT being a tranny. It's a sad day here at TAB and with 50% of the reason why we ever paid attention to the NBADL gone, I really don't know if I could ever get the strength to watch another empty seated arena on NBA-TV ever again.
Anyway, until someone puts up a "bring back the RimRockers!" petition website, you can re-live the magic and buy Arkansas Rim Rockers Logo T-Shirt for $14.99. Keep the dream alive and keep on rockin' that rim!
