NBA G-League Still Needs to Expand


Recommended Posts

Detroit Drive has a nice ring to it, but that's not going to happen. Realistcally, I would like the Detroit Horsepower (With the Grant Hill era Pistons logo, of course) or the Motor City Pistons.


Also, Walnut Creek is not were I expected the Pro Pathway team to go. I thought they would go to SoCal and be the Hollywood Pros or the San Diego Elite or something along those lines.

G League Update: 


NBA G League Ignite Passes Test in First Full-Team Scrimmage - NBA G League



The future is starting to take shape.

This week, NBA G League Ignite stepped onto their practice court in Walnut Creek, California for their first full-team scrimmages against NBA G League alumni. The team, comprised of elite prospects eligible for next year’s NBA Draft and NBA G League veterans, settled in on both ends ended up winning their scrimmage Wednesday afternoon by 20 points. Coach Brian Shaw had his team focused and ready from the tip.

The 2021 NBA Draft prospects showed that while they’re still honing their crafts, their futures look bright. Right off the bat, Jonathan Kuminga made his presence felt by flexing his physical versatility on both ends.

Walnut Creek? To play where? And a competitor in what amounts to the Warriors area when the Warriors own their G-League team down in Santa Cruz...


Very odd move.
