Can the Globetrotters play?

Poll closed Sep 26, 2014.
  1. They could hang in the preseason for those few games.

    17.1%
  2. Teams would get up (pride) and Globetrotters are not close to NBA players.

    40.0%
  3. What?

    62.9%

    What about an automatic seed in a new NBDL playoffs? Could they play or would it just be a joke?

    Hell no.

    i'd prefer to see some sort of streetball team (maybe winner of a national streetball tournament) take part.

    Globetrotters are far too gimicky IMO

    I say let the Generals play, if only because I want to see them thump the Sixers.

    I'd rather just include the Kentucky Wildcats.

    D-League Champions should get to play last year's NBA Team with the worst record.

    It may actually be close, who knows?

    Always funny how people overrated Kentucky. Can't even win a NCAA championship but would win vs experienced NBA teams?

    (enter photoshopped picture of globetrotter with beards)

    I would much rather see some more euro teams. Perhaps even have a mini tourney

    I like this a lot both for the D league and the NBA.

    Maybe a ternamement with the bottom 8 NBA teams vs top 8 D league teams.

    Tanking or they really that bad?
    See some D league players play NBA players to see where they are at and maybe make a team. It could really change one's life.
