It's been a bit of a hectic week for me personally, and I've been trying to pull together some freelance work on the side. Anyway, here are some more quality D-League links for your reading pleasure:
- Over at Ridiculous Upside, IcemanCometh writes about the production of D-League players in the NBA:
"When it comes to the NBA Developmental League, the question on every GM's mind is: "How do I know the player I see in the D-League is the player I get in my locker room (or at the end of my bench, as the case may be)?" Scott and I have been kicking around this question as well, namely, how do you evaluate players to ensure that the guy you saw windmill dunking on scrubs isn't the same guy turning the ball over every other possession once he hits the NBA?"
- Speaking of D-Leaguers in the NBA, NBA.com has a nice look at the former D-League players competing in the 2009 NBA Finals. Eight players in all have D-League experience, a record for NBA Finals participants.
- I'm always on the lookout for other D-League blogs out there. Dee-Jay runs a Utah Flash blog that you can read here. If you know of any others, please pass them along.
- Masslive.com has the latest on the new Springfield D-League franchise. In short, we should know the team logo, nickname, affiliate, and coach within the next month.
- Finally, in BayHawks news, Erie Times-News reporter Duane Rankin writes about the team's ticket prices for the upcoming season:
"As of Tuesday afternoon, the BayHawks had 484 season-ticket renewals, which ranks fourth in the D-League."
