NBA Commissioner David Stern can praise the D-League and the progress its made in recent years all he wants.

Earlier this week, our buddy Kevin Danna (the outstanding broadcaster for the Santa Cruz Warriors) jumped on Twitter, only to find himself interacting with a couple of minor league athletes about the very issue at hand. Needless to say, players like Cameron Jones and Josh Owens both feel as though higher salaries would make the D-League an even more considerable option for talented young guns moving forward.
