The NBA Developmental League or D League is exactly what it sounds like. It’s what the “D List” is to celebrities, or what kind of grades you earned if you were a “straight Ds student.” You don’t have Fs for failing grades, but you’re below the C students- those are the guys playing professionally overseas.

Thursday night marked the 2011 D-League Draft, and to little surprise, proven NBAer Jamaal Tinsley went first overall to the L.A. D-Fenders. As much as the league itself is concerned with developing talent, a player of Tinsley’s caliber held obvious appeal to what is, first and foremost, an actual basketball organization. The D coaches up…
The Texas Legends are likely to walk away with either Alando Tucker or Jamaal Tinsley.
