Are the Kebs Toast?

Broken by @FrankMartBlog, the Laval Kebs are now a league controlled team. That explains why Eddie Smith was dumped and coach Rob Spon has been a no show. Bad news.

I hope that this gets figured out, not a great thing for the league, but iff it is fixed quickly with no issues things should be fine.

Too bad though, Quebec should be able to sustain 2-3 teams easy, why has this franchise had so much trouble?

The Kebs are certainly treading on thin ice, but I think it's entirely possible for things to get turned around if the club can find a good ownership group and management team. Laval is a suburb of Montreal and I think there is more than enough people in the are interested in local basketball, so the issue is creating awareness of the team and enticing the fans in to watch the club play.

(TORONTO, ON) The National Basketball League of Canada announced today that it is placing the Quebec Kebs under new management and coaching staff. The new management team is local to Montreal and is directly responsible for all day to day operations of the team. They are headed up by Pascal Jobin, a former executive with the Quebec Basketball Federation.

League President and CEO Andre Levingston says this is the right play to ensure the Kebs are ready to tip off for the 2012/2013 season. "This wasn't an easy decision, says Levingston but the fans deserve a full season of the exciting and skilled basketball they have come to expect. I am confident Jobin and his team have the experience and enthusiasm to build a thriving organization."

The KEBS participated in the NBL Canada playoffs last year; finishing 3rd in the standings of the regular season in the 2011/2012 season, and the League is committed to ensuring that the Kebs will remain a successful part of the National Basketball League of Canada.

The League is dedicated to providing high calibre basketball and thrilling affordable family entertainment and is looking forward to the start of the 2012/2013 season.

Levingston says more details on the coaching staff will become public in the coming days.

NBL Canada would like to thank all the fans and partners who have supported and encouraged the Kebs team for the past six seasons and is looking forward to continued support.
