It was a sad day when Boise basketball fans stopped getting to see the NBA stars of the future and even some current stars in their final seasons because the Idaho Stampede left town and with it the D-League the NBA's equivalent to baseballs Triple-A league.

Now the D-League, full name the NBA Developmental League, has become the G-League, full name The Gatorade League!

Yes sir the next level of sports sponsorship has blossomed and the Gatorade branding will soon be evident on the league logo, basketballs, jerseys, you name it if a Gatorade logo will stick they'll stick it!

According to the agreement, the league will have access to Gatorades Sports Science Institute to evaluate and test the nutritional needs of athletes.

At least the players will never go thirsty.
