There seemed to be more than a little contact between the Tycoons and Defenders when I saw both earlier this season. At least one former Tycoon was already on the Defenders' roster and some of the...

I like the setup in Austin. It's very intimate and I'm not sure they would draw much better in a suburban arena. There should be a ton of room in Reno for a kids area on the stage end of the hall....

It's larger than the hall the Toros play in, and Austin has retractable risers on one side only, temporary risers on two others. Looks like Reno would seat about 5000 for basketball where Austin can...

There was a Semi-Pro promotion at the Toros game Saturday. White guys with Brady perm wigs and headbands, gimmie cups and big foam hands with "We're #4!" printed on them and four fingers extended...

lol

I find the comments pretty funny. If they don't know the difference between the ABA and the D-League, they won't be going to the games anyway.

It has already begun

Langford is slated to leave March 1 barring an NBA callup.

Teams like the Toros are too good to stay together an entire season. I've resigned myself to that.

Serge

He's barely in the rotation. I thought he may have had an opportunity to take some minutes from Anthony Fuqua, but Fooq really turned it on these past couple of games. I'm not sure how much Serge...

Thumbs up Wow!

Thanks! I'll let you know when I finalize the plans. It will probably one of the games between March 11 and 14 when the Toros are there all week.

Lightbulb updates are a good thing

That's the D-League

Anything can happen.

I expect anywhere from one to four of the Toros best players to leave to get paid soon, so I'm not really expecting a championship.

DerMarr was just all over him. You can't fault Powell for this one, he was playing the way I usually see him play; he just had a motivated NBA player defending him Saturday. That was DerMarr's season...

No need to panic

Austin's loss to the Energy was the anomaly here. There's no way their 8-man squad should beaten the Toros' 9. The Toros played like crap in that game and I imagine DerMarr got taken to the woodshed...
