    I can't seem to get enough basketball during the offseason, so I was forcing myself to give WNBA yet another chance at my (fickle) attention lately on NBAtv. It's still not as exciting as men's basketball, but the competition and skill level is definitely steadily improving. Same with the NBA D-League, although that's more of what I'm hearing than from what I've seen.

    So my question is how come Portland doesn't have a team in one of these leagues?

    The wnba team didnt work out here.  I wouldn't mind a d league team here. More basketball is more basketball.

    I'll pass on the horse race. I hate when the NBA tries to shove the WNBA down NBA fans throats. A D-league franchise would be sweet though.

    I think all NBA teams should have their own D-League affiliate, similar to Baseball. I'd like it if basketball had a longer draft, and could form their own minor-league team. It would make it easier to develop players such as Elliot, Babbitt, and make it easier also to bring players back from injury quicker. Let them play a 'rehab' assignment in the Dleague to get their legs back before playing the real thing.

    Horse race! HAHAHAHHAH oh god. dude that killed me.
     i know its bad, and i dont mean anything by it, but WNBA just doesn't work for me, its like Girl Skaters, or....Male strippers Idk Polar opposites.
    But Portland shares the team with Denver and thats seems fair,  i like the way the d league is set up, open try outs every year, its great.
    And so many good players have come from it. 

    But did any of you guys hear about the league they were trying to set up down in the south, it was crazy and i dont know if it went through or not....
    All White's League

    i mean, c'mon wtf is that about?

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
