Parillon speaks

The All American and Elite 8 League Organizer, Parillon, also added, “we are pleased to know we could have given the fans some basketball excitement”.

All roads will now lead to the next Basketball League, that should get on the way in late August 2018, the popular and highly competitive, Honourable Julian Fraser's 'Save the Seed National Basketball League,' where they will be playing for gold rings, and continuing the 2017 series that came to an abrupt end following the destruction of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September of last year.
