I have always been surprised that Canada didn't even have a decent league. Not even US players would consider it and would prefer to bolt to Europe.

The D-League is a freaking joke. Players can't earn a living there.

The D-League is not, and never has been, a legit alternative to playing in Europe, where the salaries are exponentially higher.

Honestly, if the OKC Thunder had ANY of those team names and logos, it'd be way better than what they currently have.

Not NBA TV. It would give me fear that there's an agenda to eventually merge, so that the NBA can expand more into Canada.
