I have to be honest. Scouring the NBA D-League for news and notes is not exactly at the top of my day-to-day blogging list. But thanks to the fellas at Ridiculous Upside, I no longer have to.
Yesterday, the D-League – the same league that brought us Billy Thomas and Lance Allred - announced the affiliation system for the 2008-09 season. And while most teams have their “affiliations” split between two NBA franchises, it just so happens that our partner is none other than the Philadelphia 76ers. The same city that has shared in our losing for the majority of this century, and the same host city to the team that provided one of the bigger controversies at the end of the regular season.
