Welcome to the VBA

The Vintage Basketball Association is a retro basketball league using DK Sports’ ActionPC Basketball Game’s season from 35 years prior. We just finished our 10th regular season (1988-89) and the Fresno Stars, are 78-4 in their chase for a THREE-PEAT!!! The Costa Mesa Condors traded for Kevin McHale at the trade deadline, hoping to derail Fresno’s dynasty. During the 1987-88 season, Fresno finished the regular season 77-5 and made it back-to-back championships.

During the 1986-87¬†campaign, the 1985-86 runners-up, the Fresno Stars, finished with an unbelievable 81-1 record and they waltzed thru the playoffs defeating the Defending Champion Costa Mesa Condors 4-1 in the VBA Finals. See all details of the VBA Playoffs…

In the 1985-86 season, the Costa Mesa Condors, with the league’s best offense, went 71-11, setting a new league record for victories and continued their mastery in the Playoffs, winning the Championship.

The winner of the 1984-85 season was the Philadelphia Fire. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was named Finals MVP in Philly’s sweep of the Callaway Kings.

The 1983-84 Season ended with the Rocky Mountain Oysters becoming the first back-to-back champions by defeating the Bucks County Knights 4 games to 2 in the VBA Finals.

The 1982-83 Season saw Rocky Mountain set a single-season record for wins going 69-13 and won game 7 of the Championship by one point. The Minnesota Muskies were the first team to make the VBA Finals for the 2nd time. Our 3rd season saw our first champion from the Eastern Conference as the Oklahoma Noodlers defeated the Minnesota Muskies in six games. Our inaugural season ended with the El Paso Scorpions, with the league’s best defense and best record, win the first-ever championship. Our second championship went to the league’s best offense, the Sun Valley Bobcats.

The 1982-83 Draft saw the VBA shift to a weighted-lottery for pick #1 overall from the non-playoff teams. Picks 2-12 were randomly chosen from the 7 teams that did not get the #1 overall and the first 4 teams eliminated from the playoffs. The remaining 4 teams were seeded lowest to highest winning percentage. The Philadelphia Fire chose Dominique Wilkins with the number one pick.
