Averaging 27.1 points and 10.5 boards, Mike Harris was a man on the inside for Rio Grande Valley this season.

I’m sitting here looking at the All-NBA D-League teams and that first-team squad is nice, but then I checked out the honorable mention list.


I could pick five guys from that list and seriously challenge the first team.

“You coming to this part tonight,” he shouted at me.

“Sure am,” I replied.


Bobbitt is ready to do work.

“Damn right,” he replied back.

Earlier today, I went to the morning shootaround for the Maine Red Claws at Tullio Arena and one of their players, Tony Bobbitt, was already ready to play at 11 in the morning. Bobbitt played college ball at Cincinnati and was with the Los Angeles Lakers at one time.

“I’m ready to go right now,” he said during the shootarond.

The D-League season isn’t even a week old and the Maine Red Claws are getting better by the minute.

Not only has their NBA affiliates – Boston and Charlotte – sent down a player to them in forward Bill Walker (Celtics) and 7-foot center Alexis Ajinca (Bobcats), but the Mad Claws also added 6-9 forward Trey Gilder, who was waived by the Memphis Grizzles last month after helping Colorado win the 2009 D-League title.

If Springfield is able to keep Marcus Campbell, it will have a true enforcer in the paint.

The D-League had its expansion draft for Springfield and Maine today.

Springfield used the first pick to tab 7-footer Marcus Campbell while Maine took athletic swing man James White, who finished the 2008-09 season in the NBA with the Houston Rockets.

Unlike a year ago when Erie and Reno picked unprotected players from the remaining D-League teams, Springfield and Maine picked guys from 2009 D-League champion Colorado and Anaheim, two teams that are now defunct.

The Colorado 14ers are a victory away from winning the 2009 D-League Finals after winning at Utah in overtime, 136-131, Wednesday night.



After coaching his team to the league's best record, Bob MacKinnon has the Colorado 14ers one victory away from winning the 2009 D-League Finals.

Some serious points were scored in this one.

The top-seeded 14ers (37-16) finished overtime on an 8-2 run to win Game 1. Guard Dominique Coleman scored four of those eight points. His bucket put Colorado ahead for good, 132-131, with 55 seconds left. Coleman had 10 for the game.

The 14ers will now have the opportunity to win the best-of-3 series in Friday’s Game 2 at home. If necessary, Game 3 will be played Monday at  Colorado.

Colorado lead by as many as 24 points in the first half, but the second-seeded Flash (34-19) came back and led 122-121 after a Robert Dupree dunk with a minute and 10 seconds left in the game. Dupree scored a game-high 37 points.

Colorado rookie Trey Gilder tied the game, but missed the second free throw that would have given the 14ers the lead with 22 seconds left. Utah guard Kevin Kruger failed to win the game at the buzzer as he missed a jump shot.

Denver Nuggets rookie Sonny Weems lead the 14ers with 28 points while Billy Thomas and Josh Davis added 27 and 25 points, respectively.

The 14ers began their playoff run by beating the Erie BayHawks in the opening round.

Having played nearly most of the season for the Toros, Williams went for 33 in 53 minutes of action to help Austin (33-18) overcome a 19-point lead and knock out the defending D-League champion Stampede (31-20).

The Toros will play at top-seeded Colorado (35-16) in Saturday’s semifinal game

(2) Utah 94, (8) Bakersfield 81: The Flash limited the Jam to 37.9 percent shooting in advancing to the league semifinals. Bakersfield shot just 2-of-10 from 3-point range as they were outscored, 54-40, in the second half.  Kevin Kruger led the Flash (33-18) with 23 points, six rebounds, six assists and two steals while Trey Johnson paced the Jam (26-25) with 23 points and six rebounds.

Utah will play the winner of tonight’s Dakota-Iowa game.
