Default CBL Exposure League

I realize a lot of this board isn't from the States, but I'd like to bring this up anyways. I used to play basketball when I was a kid and I've been looking into getting back to playing lately, so when I was Googling semi-pro teams in the area, I came across this:

To sum it up, it's an attempt to give communities across the country a semi-pro team and help prospective players get noticed by colleges or, potentially, even pro teams. Sure, nobody's going to find the next big NBA star here, but it could help people who didn't (or couldn't) play ball in high school get an athletic scholarship with a lower-level college. (For anyone outside the US, we Americans put a lot more focus into college athletics than pretty much everyone else) As best as I've been able to tell, the league ownership is on the level and have really thought the CBL's concepts out.

Also, I know people have a love/hate relationship with crowdfunding, but I'll leave this here anyways:

Teams do exist and have played, so it's not for start-up cash for something that might never exist, it's to show potential owners that there's an interest in this league.
