The modern ABL is an Asian league.

They folded primarily because they saw the writing on the wall when the WNBA arrived. To that point they were losing money, and when they realized they would have to compete with teams operating essentially with NBA sanctioning, they chose to close up shop. In retrospect given the history of women's basketball in North America, it may have been the smartest move in that history to date, as the WNBA has reportedly never made a dime.

As of 2014 that is not true, they are making some money.
