The KBDL schedule is regionally based and allows teams to play at home and closer to home more often. The KBDL has attracted the interest of dozens of pro, semi-pro and international pro basketball players, coaches and managers since it began three years ago. It's objective is to create a minor league system that develops and trains talent for the international professional basketball leagues.

Players who have competed in the KBDL include Anthony Epps (University of Kentucky), James Brewer (University of Louisville), Brandon Stockton (University of Kentucky), Chad Schweitzer (Indiana University), John Bentley (Eastern Kentucky University), Will Carleton (University of Utah/Georgetown) and Brandon Jenkins (University of Louisville).
