Westchester Knicks games are a fun and inexpensive night out. The caliber of play in the G League is fairly high and the games are usually over in just over 2 hours. Even though some of the court (the baseline or near sideline) may not be visible from certain seats, on the whole the County Center is a nice place to watch a game as fans are close to the action.
When the NBA G-League relocated the Eerie BayHawks to Florida, a list of potential suitors was named, including Disney’s Wide World of Sports, Jacksonville, CFE Arena, and Germain Arena in Estero, among others. However, it was Lakeland that won out in the end and the fans have embraced the team with open arms. Located steps away from historic downtown Lakeland, the Magic have found a home in a quaint small town just a short drive from both Orlando and Tampa, perfectly nestled between the two metropolises.
The NBA G-League is full of many unique arenas, and the Expo would certainly be near the top of that list. The second oldest gym still in use in the country may be cramped and show its age from time to time, but it’s packed most nights with Maine hoops fans who wouldn’t want to watch their basketball in any other place.
Prior to 2018, the Washington Wizards were one of the few NBA teams without a G League affiliate. Dating back to the league’s time as the Development League, the Wizards never had a club to send their younger players to. That all changed when the Capital City Go-Go were founded and the Entertainment & Sports Arena opened. The ESA was built on the former site of St. Elizabeth’s Psychiatric Hospital with the intent of revitalizing the Congress Heights neighborhood.
It’s no surprise that veteran minor league baseball and hockey travelers alike consistently rank Portland among their favorite cities to visit. Whether you head to Maine for sports, food, beer, shopping or sightseeing, Portland offers a little something for everyone. It’s truly a worthy destination for a Stadium Journey.
Founded in 2001 and originally known as the Columbus Riverdragons (based out of Columbus, GA), the franchise moved to Austin as part of the NBA’s D-League (now the NBA G-League) in 2005 and became the Austin Toros. The San Antonio Spurs purchased the franchise in 2007 to serve as their developmental team. In their decade-plus tenure in the Lone Star State, the franchise relocated from downtown Austin to the suburb of Cedar Park to their current home, H-E-B Center, changed their name yet again to become the Austin Spurs, and have become consistent winners like their parent team – the Austin Spurs have claimed six division titles, five conference titles, and won the league championship in 2012.
