@Sam you are correct that the majority are still not owned by the parent club but there is much more than 3 or 4 and more on the way. The last couple of realignments of teams have put the pressure on teams to either sign a long term deal or just simply own a team. Some teams were really scrambling t...

I agree with you about pay. The new deal is better but still not there. This is just another reason I dont think the NBA could support a sub league right now. One thing to consider is that a two way player will kind of be viewed and paid like a member of a MLB 40 man roster playing in the Minor Leag...

Yeah, my comment was supposed to read teams are often operated and owned by the parent club. While your statement is still true for a lot of clubs, more and more parent clubs are now owning and managing their own teams. Take the Braves for instance. They own the AAA, AA, and low-A teams. They have a...

So in your last post are you meaning to create a "Minor League" Layered system or a true "Independent League" because those are two VERY different things. Minor league baseball teams are operated and often of by the parent club. All players are under contract by that organization. The only Minor Lea...

So..... If the thought is to build a layered system of sub divisions under the D/G League I would point out a couple of things. Baseball and Hockey already have this in place and soccer in some ways. What makes basketball different from hockey and baseball is that the structure of the draft would ha...

Just to be honest if a kid skips college to come straight to the pros then he better be good enough to compete in the G-League IMMEDIATELY. We are talking maybe a handful of elite players per year. Players Lebron, Kobe, KG and others that came straight in from high school. We are not talking about a...

I respect your perspective but do not agree with it. At a one to one affiliation that would put 360 players in the league with some being on two way contracts. Out of those 360 potential players I would imagine a number maybe at 25% of these (non two way contract) players earning a NBA call up would...

While your info is spot on, I would mention that even with less players per team they will have added about 10 teams from a couple seasons ago till a couple seasons from now. At just 7 roster spots per team that still equals 70 players added to the league from say 2012 to 2012. At 7 per every team i...

The league announced that all the games will be streamed live on YouTube. Similar to the deals we been seeing in other leagues and sports. Interesting thing is that the season really starts like today and most teams will likely have to throw together something real fast. Columbus will be the only on...

I agree it will likely be a beat down and I also expect it to be Jacksonville in the finals likely against Columbus. The Firebird's spot in the league was not about how many games they win, but more about having a team in the footprint that has a solid lease agreement and little risk to fold. I do e...
