Based in Stockton, CA, Team Trouble is a professional men’s basketball team in the American Basketball Association.

Team Trouble thrives in the ABA because it is considered to be a much flashier league than the NBA. In place of the traditional orange basketball we use a red, white and blue ball that Julius Erving made famous as the symbol of the American Basketball Association.

Thank you to Tim Nusog Photography who snapped this team photo.
