Ridiculous Update #4: Featuring Former D-Leaguers In The NBA Playoffs

+

This RUpdate is more or less a season summary, a team by team breakdown of every player with D-League experience. The D-League site did something similar, but I want it to be known that I had thought of this before I saw their list (which I'm sure is better). Then I'll finish off with some yearly awards. Jump!

Wizards Sign Othyus Jeffers

+

Othyus Jeffers recieved his second well-deserved Gatorade Call Up of the season, becoming the 17 such call up of the 2010-2011 season. Othyus will probably get more time to play here (since the Wizards are terrible) than in San Antonio, where he scored 2 points, snagged a couple rebounds and had an assist in 8 garbage minutes against the Miami Heat on March 4th.

Ridiculous Update #1

Recent weeks here have seen a sharp decline in content from anyone who isn't Scott Schroeder (and a not-at-all coincidental rise in quality), a development that has led me to find my own little...

Spurs Call up Othyus Jeffers

Larry Sanders' Mad Ants debut rescheduled

Unfortunately for me, this means I have to decide between Joakim Noah's Bulls return or Larry's debut. I can't watch both live.

James Johnson traded to Toronto Raptors.

Who has two thumbs and is excited to get some playing time? This guy! James Johnson, he of the kickboxing and generally being awesome at everything that isn't NBA basketball, will finally get a...

Reno's Steve Novak signs a 10-Day with San Antonio.

1

I know this happened yesterday, but it's still noteworthy, as this is the first Gatorade Call-Up in the history of the Reno Bighorns. Also notable is the fact that Novak, the former Rocket, Clipper and Maverick, hit a three in his :45 seconds of playing time last night against Detroit, possibly giving him the highest per 36 scoring average EVER. 108.0!

The One D-Leaguer Every NBA Team Needs To Call Up and Why.
