Season 24 is just about to begin for the Sioux Falls Skyforce.  The NBA Development League franchise has the 10 player roster ready and the Iowa Energy as first opponent on Saturday night.

The sweet taste of championships past has long faded in the throes of two woeful seasons.  A lack of due diligence doomed the ‘Force in one campaign and a recurring inability to finish 4th quarters cost the team a few wins in the other.  So one of the most successful minor league basketball franchises in history has turned control over to a young, energetic leader on the bench named Joel Abelson.  The leader has assembled the largest staff ever for the Skyforce and they appear armed and ready.

Since the ultimate destination is the playoffs and half the teams qualify, that is job one.  A good start for the season comes down to the steps taken to assemble the team and committing to the philosophy imbued by Abelson and staff.  Listen below to how Coach Abelson has prepared and will soon execute his plan for the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
