The Chicago Condors were a very short-lived member of the American Basketball League (ABL). Their hometown was much larger than usual for the ABL, which mainly targeted mid-market cities, and initial team merchandising was successful. The team appeared to have a solid base. General manager Allison Hodges was the wife of former Chicago Bulls star Craig Hodges, and former Bulls assistant Jim Cleamons was head coach.
In the ABL expansion draft leading up to the team's first season, the Condors selected Tausha Mills, Ashley Berggren, Ryneldi Becenti, Cathy Boswell, E.C. Hill, Anita Kaplan, Dana Wilkerson, they later added Joanne McCarthy and Beverly Williams to their roster.
Only 12 games into their first season, the team was forced to disband when, on December 22, 1998, the ABL suddenly went bankrupt.
