"The exposure has been great for me," he says. "There are so many NBA scouts who've never seen me play. In the ABA it's like I'm over on the other side of the Iron Curtain. I know of no other guy willing to work as hard as Marquis has to put the league together. It's amazing what he's accomplished, and he's done it by taking money out of his own pocket when he couldn't afford it."
Marquis, who has a wife and five children, dreams that his enterprise will pick up a sponsor, and that the NBA and ABA will merge and make the Cal State gym the official summer resort for every pro prospect in the nation.
