The Central Basketball Development League is opening the doorways to look into partnering with any other leagues who have stabilized its structure within their own league and looking to compete against top level competitors across the US. CEO Benjamin Mireles has stated that it is not about the title of the league in which anyone may have, but the level of competition and other stronger teams in which they play and the actual ability to travel and get in some solid games with other teams outside their own region. "Its important to bring attention to the need of working together as a league and pushing for more competitive and consistent basketball across the US as its unnecessary to not be able to compete against teams who are solid right outside your back door " said the CEO. "Our direction for our teams and players is to be able to bring in more solidified sponsors and supporters within our industry and I know that if a couple of leagues team up, and with financially strong teams, that the teams would not care about the title of the league they are in as much as they would care about the stability, strength, and value of their team within their own city and how much more incentive it could bring for players to compete against caliber players within each team". The CBDL is always looking to build on the structure of the D-League but it also promotes training and development as a key component to being a successful league and/or team. If the teams follow the training and development structure in which is in place, it could assist more players to play within the D-League and higher developmental platforms overseas. "If the teams focus on marketing the teams correctly and provide a product of reliability and consistency, it will be so much easier to have players who want to play for them" said Mireles. "And if the teams build these players with IQ, understanding the industry, financial management, playbook reading, and much more, it would really build these athletes to an elite level". The CBDL will continue its long-filled journey to find caliber players and ownership groups who want to play the game and not worry about choosing who is better than the next, "At this level of basketball, if all these leagues were better than the next then most of these teams would be given the attention by the D-League and even by the bigger levels internationally" said CEO Ben Mireles. "But its not the case, and everyone needs to start thinking about the players and what their purpose is by wanting to play here at this level". Once again, its about building a credible team with resources to not only make money but to also give these players what they deserve which is a chance to be really be seen by the next level and given a higher and more consistent level of competitiveness. So we will see what can be done, but the league is going strong and continue to look for validity within the minor-league industry.
