The Scouting Report
As the 2013–14 D-League season hits the home stretch, the Iowa Energy aren't just playing for a playoff berth—they're eyeing the league's top overall seed. The Energy's 20–11 record trails only Central Division rival Rio Grande Valley for the league's best mark. Currently in the midst of a four-game winning streak, the Energy show no sign of slowing down. Guard/forward Othyus Jeffers is the team's true catalyst, averaging a double-double and routinely putting together Herculean performances without having to slay a nine-headed hydra with just his shoelaces.
The 2010–11 season was a milestone for the Iowa Energy. Just their fourth season as part of the Developmental League—which has helped produce nearly one-third of the NBA's players as of the 2011–12 season—the team claimed its first league championship, defeating the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Prior to their title run, the Energy had made back-to-back playoff appearances fueled by first-place finishes in the league's Central Division. The Energy plays all of its home games at Wells Fargo Arena, where future basketball stars of the Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Pelicans, Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Washington Wizards learn the basics of the NBA game and how to do veteran players' laundry.
