- Sporting News quotes Jeff Foote (Cornell '10) on the NBA D-League and writes:
Jeff Foote, a veteran of European powerhouses Maccabi Tel-Aviv and Zalgiris, who also had a stint with New Orleans in the NBA, and spent the year with the Springfield Armor, said that pay is the one big difference between overseas and the D-League. "If they were to increase the salaries here, this would be easily the second-best league in the world," Foote said. "I think that is kind of what kills it, unfortunately. I get the business aspect of it, I understand, it is tough to raise the revenues to pay the players. But I think that is where the competition loses out. It is tough to raise a family on a D-League salary. In Europe, everything that is covered here in the D-League is covered there, too, plus you make six times, seven times more money."
