In other news the NBA D League has sold it's naming rights to Gatorade: http://dleague.nba.c...torade-league/.
The upshot there is Gatorade is going to collaborate with the league on player development. If that means improving training and coaching then it's a plus. I didn't know that 40% of NBA players have had time in the D league. I didn't think it was near that high.
And is the NBA considering expansion to 32 teams? This article doesn't confirm it but then cities are putting together bid packages in a time when no teams are relocation candidates it makes you wonder. Where there is smoke there is usually fire. http://www.sbnation....tle-adam-silver
Whenever expansion comes up you have to ask if the talent pool of the league can support two new teams. I think the skill level of the average NBA player has never been higher but must clubs still have bench depth problems. At the same time the game has never been more popular overseas and several nations in Europe and elsewhere have leagues that play at a high level. The talent pool may be there.
What do you guys think?
