Does anyone remember the Daedals?

Kareem Abdul Jabbar and his Traveling Daedals played the Boomers in the early 1990s.

Who organised it? Did they fill the stadiums? Did any of you see them? Were they any good?

I do recall and if I'm correct a young Longley played for Australia and D Train was on the Daedals.......I could be wrong but I think McClain toured.

Yeah Kestleman is talking about the first time all the yanks have been in Australia. That's wrong.

Kareem, George Gervin, Marques Johnson - and yes Dwayne McClain, who was the MVP of the Daedals. That was a great tour. Just about sold out the old Kingdome (RIP) and was a big reason why the D-Train wound up playing for the Kings.
