Five teams returned to compete for the trophy in the league’s second season (2010/2011) and the Thailand Tigers were replaced by the Chang Thailand Slammers. In a championship series featuring the upstart Slammers and the defending champion Patriots, Thailand would not be denied as they captured the trophy at the end of the season.
The league expanded going into the third season despite the departure of the Brunei Barracudas. The Saigon Heat (Vietnam), the Bangkok Cobras (Thailand) and the San Miguel Beermen (Philippines) joined the remaining five to push league membership to eight teams. In addition, the Satria Muda BritAma changed its name to the Indonesia Warriors. More teams resulted in an extended season and after six grueling months of competition the Indonesia Warriors became the third team to lift the ASEAN Basketball League Championship trophy in as many seasons, defeating the San Miguel Beermen.
Now poised to return for a fourth season, the ABL is here to stay!
