Two great articles posted today on the league that was and the league that is. Not many differences, or surprises, but entertaining nonetheless.

If anything, I've got to wonder if the scariest part of the story isn't anything that happened with the Frost Heaves or even the specter of Joe Newman, it's D-League Bakersfield being successful as practically a country club catering to bigwigs instead of an arena or even gym catering to fans.

That's what the NBA is close to doing on a large scale.

I do quite miss those nights in Barre. A real good article.

I remember when this originally started and some bright boy said, "He's only doing it so he can write about it for SI."

And here we are, 10 years later. WHAT PRESCIENCE!

(TL/DR version: It was fun, but everything out of Joe Newman's mouth is a lie.)
