Kansas City, MO – January 30, 2013 - Kansas City has been without a professional basketball franchise for over 35 years when in 1985, the Kansas City Kings ceased to be our resident team.

Does Kansas City have enough talent to support a pro-, or even semi-pro, basketball team? CEO and Coach, Bryant Tucker, Sr. and others believe so, and are setting out to prove that the “Show-Me-State” is a viable base for talent from all over the USA to showcase their skills as one of several teams on the ABA Semi-Pro circuit.

Established in 2010, Mr. Tucker organized the Missouri Rhythm Nation Hoops (Missouri Rhythm) basketball team. The Missouri Rhythm is a member of American Basketball Association. Its mission is not only to give aspiring ballplayers a chance at perfecting their skills and utilizing their talent, but strives to utilize their position as a public forum to build spiritual and moral character throughout the metropolitan area by demonstrating biblical principles.

The Missouri Rhythm teams up with other ABA teams such as the Oklahoma Stallions, St. Louis Scorpions and the Chicago Steam to act as role models for youth, non-believers, and the surrounding community. Always looking for support within the community, its sponsors include Eastside Baptist Church, Blaketivity, Grindhouse KC, One Body Book & Gift and Arrington Unlimited, not to mention partnerships with the Click-N-Kids and Education First programs.

With 9 games remaining in the season, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to experience a professional game at amateur prices. Tickets are only $10 for adults and $5.00 for youth/college students/seniors, children 2yo and under are free. Discounted tickets are available for all church groups. See the game schedule at


Next Game is: Saturday, 2/2, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
