    Mad today i went to tryout for the 1997 northern kings team, I was shocked to notice that there was nba collective players. After getting more information i realized that Coach N of the Nba collective took all players from NBAC A team and made the Northern Kings for AAU. there was a tryout fee which was 10 dollars they made this tryout to simply make a couple hundred bucks for the organization,After paying i received a cheap t . which said KINGNATION on the back. they added maximum 2 players to the roster. i am not very impressed with that organization and i think these kinda things shouldnt be taken lightly.
    JUST WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW WHAT THERE GETTING INTO BEFORE THEY TRYOUT FOR TEAMS

    Is it the $10 charge for the try-out or is it because they already had a team and only added 2 players that's making you upset?

    I agree with you on the charging of $10 to try-out!! But I'm guessing there is a cost with getting the gym and they probably didn't make a profit with charging only $10. An alternative solution would be to charge a little extra to those that do make the team to absorb some of the costs. Either way somebody has to pay for it.

    As for already having a team and adding 2.... I'm guessing they needed 2 players, how else would they get players without holding a try-out?
