D-League Proving to be Beneficial for NBA
The locker room of the Idaho Stampede wasn’t a locker room at all. It wasn’t even a room. It was four temporary walls joined together, and it had no ceiling. It sat like a large unfinished cargo container inside the arena behind the court where the Stampede were about to play in front of the most intimidating audience in basketball.
Mike Peck, the Stampede’s first-year coach, was pulling on his black suit jacket inside the collapsible locker room. “It’s the D-League,” he said of his team’s surroundings. “I’m going to use the same line everybody else uses to explain everything — it’s the D-League.”
