http://sportsillustr...olan-smith/#all The SI article said there are 11 D-League teams but the official D-League website shows 16 teams...lazy journalism at its finest. What caught my attention was that D-League regulars make $15,000.00 to $25,000.00 per season. If the D-League continues to grow and that amount doubles, could we start seeing some blue chippers opt for the D-League instead of the NBA? The D-League will eventually get to 30 teams and then after that happens, there could be another minor league division added to that. Could this have an impact on college basketball down the road? I'm also thinking that if the Nugs were to put a D-League team in this state, perhaps Colorado Springs will get that team over Broomfield and Loveland.
