The player ravaged American Basketball League sunk totally out of the spotlight. No longer considered a major league, the ABL was totally dominated by a powerful team in Baltimore that captured 31 wins in 34 games. Buddy Jeannette, lured away from the NBL Ft.Wayne Pistons, starred as the Bullets player-coach. Between ABL games, the Bullets roamed south to North Carolina and as far as west as Seattle playing lucrative exhibitions. The ABL playoffs saw the first place finishers in each division, Brooklyn and Baltimore, face off against each other while four other teams fought it out for the right to play against the winner for the championship. After absorbing an uncharacteristic 80-66 loss in game one, the Bullets pummeled the Gothams with consecutive 27 and 24 points beatings to take their series. When the playoffs for the right to meet Baltimore for the championship dragged on, endangering some lucrative exhibition dates, the Bullets abruptly declared themselves as the league champions and declined to participate any further. With the league’s best team out of the picture, the ABL went on with the playoffs. Trenton, a mediocre .500 team, won a hallow championship. The dismal outcome to the season was just another embarrassment to the ABL. Any semblance of a major league operation was long gone.
