Ok

You know the market better than I. I'm sure there are myriad possible combinations of venue size, ticket prices and sponsorships that could make something work. I don't guess the Brooklyn team drew...

The Celtics re-assigned Gabe Pruitt to the Flash, so they were pretty guard-heavy and had to waive someone to get the roster down to 12. He had only been there since February 1.

Venues

I think a lot of it depends on the rent. The Austin Convention Center holds around 2900 and the McAllen Convention Center holds a little over 2500. Neither team cites the size of the venue as an...

Any news on the alleged trade?

I personally don't see much reason for Austin to trade unless they were somehow getting one of your best players like Gross or Hodge. I think they could just pick up...

Toros played seven tonight

Ian Mahinmi was suited up but didn't play due to a sore back he suffered after falling flat on it after a hard Terrence Crawford foul Saturday.

Cheyne Gadson played. I don't understand why the...

McAllen attendance

Sunday was predictably pretty empty. Friday's was reportedly quite a good crowd but Saturday was not. BorderFest was happening that weekend and might have had some influence on attendance.

Better late than never

It seems all the personnel and financial issues are finally settled, so the Silverados can conentrate on finishing the season strong. It's just too bad they are ending up on the road.

Amarillo

Like I said, the big sticking point with Amarillo would be scheduling in the Civic Center with the Gorillas. I think the market could actually support all the teams since they are all pretty cheap...

Wichita Falls

If the Cavs don't have a problem with it, then play ball. It would be neat to see how the media covers both teams (aren't they in the same market?).

Amarillo has a decent arena that might work if...

maybe

I think Wichita Falls a little too close to Lawton which doesn't have the benefit of other population centers to draw from like Brownsville would in a rivalry with the Silverados.

Beaumont and Shreveport would be the best choices if one was trying to group the team geographically. El Paso is pretty easy to get to by air and has a couple of potential venues that might be priced...

Well, the Toros kind of got boned since Andre Barrett got called up by the Clippers only one game after they traded Justin Reed for him.

Ian Mahinmi wasn't able to finish the Anaheim game as he...

Of course

He believes the Silverados can be viable regardless of the status of the Vipers. According to him, most of the sponsors appear willing to stick with the team and that there is some untapped potential...

Silverados plan to stay in McAllen

Had a nice chat with co-owner (now majority owner) Dr. Jordan Maswoswe during the Silverados home finale Sunday. He and the front office staff are actually cautiously optimistic about a second season...
