The Dallas Generals was a team of the American Basketball Association that began play in the 2009-10 season. The franchise was owned by entertainment industry veteran Keio Gamble. The team's home games were played at Fair Park Coliseum in Dallas, Texas. The team ceased operations in January 2010 with announced intentions to return for the 2010-11 season. Ultimately, the franchise was replaced by a new team, the Dallas Impact.
The team took "a momentary step back from operations" after their December 5, 2009, home game in order to reorganize. They announced their intention to resume play with a home game on January 2, 2010. Later in January 2010, the team announced it was ceasing operations for the remainder of the 2009-2010 season, refunding tickets, and regrouping to return for the 2010-2011 season. A new franchise with different ownership, the Dallas Impact, replaced the Generals for the 2010-2011 season.
