Mike Gansey China Trip Day 2: Can You Say Rock Stars!

Today was a crazy and eventful day. First let me say that the earthquake that just hit China the other day was close but has not affected us here, but please keep these people in your prayers. Today we helped donate four basketball courts to the earthquake stricken victims of suburb Chengdu and let me say they pulled out the red carpet for us. It felt like The Beatles had just arrived.

I got together with the D-League blogosphere awhile back to discuss the best in the D-League from the regular season. In the end, though, we decided to give out the same awards that the D-League coaches vote on: Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Most Improved Player, Impact Player of the Year and Coach of the Year - as well as our own All-D-League teams.

Rod Benson Being Done With The D-League Is Downright Disappointing
