Armor Unveil New Web Site Design

August 5, 2009 - NBA G League (G League) - Springfield Armor News Release

SPRINGFIELD, MA August 5, 2009 - The Springfield Armor's Web site, www.armorhoops.com, has received a facelift.

Under the direction of the NBA's technical and creative staff, the Armor's new and improved Web site conforms to the eye-catching model used by existing NBA Development League teams. The updated edition of the Armor's home page includes a revolving panel of four top stories, which keep visitors up to date on the most recent team news, promotions and other pertinent items.

The newly designed version of the site also includes promises of exciting things to come, such as the creation of the Body of Armor - the official fan club of the Armor - and a dance team. Also included are staples found on the previous site, including links to purchase season and tickets and to sign up for the team's official newsletter. Fans also can link directly to the Armor's NBA affiliates, the New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets and Philadelphia 76ers, from the new Web site.

"This is more evidence of our team moving in the right direction," Managing Partner Michael Savit said. "Our newly designed Web site provides us with greater opportunities to effectively communicate with our fan base and continue the excitement we've created in the community."

NBA Development League

The NBA Development League, founded in 2001, is the NBA's official minor league and featured 16 teams with direct affiliations to NBA teams during the 2008-09 season. This fall, two new NBA D-League teams will begin play in Portland, Maine and Springfield, Mass.-- the birthplace of basketball. Eighty-four former NBA Development League players were on 2008-09 NBA end-of-season rosters, amounting to almost 20 percent of NBA players, and the league continues to develop coaches, referees, and front office staff for the NBA and its teams. In fostering the league's connection to the community, its teams, players and staff promote health and wellness, support local needs and interests, and assist in educational development through NBA D-League Cares programs. The NBA D-League also advances the game of basketball as the research and development arm of the NBA. Throughout the season fans can watch all NBA D-League games on NBA Futurecast, the free live Web-streaming initiative found at nba.com/futurecast.
