If you’ve ever been to San Antonio, Texas, you know the streets and town are painted in only three colors – silver, black, and white.
Yes, the San Antonio Spurs are everywhere in the city whether you go to the mall, a local restaurant, or of course, the tons of billboards along the highway. So, how would another basketball league fair in a city that is all about the Spurs?
It’s an interesting question because that may be the case, as one report states that a hip-hop mogul will be starting his own basketball league that will compete salary-wise with the NBA D-League.
An inaugural 24-game, 12-team season will begin in January of 2013.
It will challenge the NBA's D-League by paying as much as $3,000 per month and serve as an overseas player feeder.
The league will be based in Miami, San Antonio, San Marcos, Sugarland, College Station, Ft Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Fort Walton Beach, Sebring and Corpus Christi.
For the Spurs, this shouldn’t be an issue. I’m sure they won’t lose many viewers of their live audience because even if you live in San Antonio and you don’t like the Spurs, there are still opposing teams that will visit the Alamo City at least twice a year.
