The Scouting Report
As the Developmental League season sprints toward its halfway mark, the D-Fenders host a trio of rivals from the West Division—the most competitive division in the league, with all five teams separated by just six games. Much like an ostrich wearing a fresh pair of running shoes, the D-Fenders have hit their stride of late. Since the New Year, the team has posted a record well-above .500, highlighted by a January 27 victory over the Texas Legends that saw the D-Fenders post a season-high 150 points.
Los Angeles D-Fenders
When the Los Angeles D-Fenders were established in 2006, the Los Angeles Lakers became the first team in NBA history to own a Developmental League affiliate. Like the Lakers, the D-Fenders donned the iconic purple and gold color scheme, and took the court at Staples Center. The team has since moved its home games to the Toyota Sports Center—where the Lakers practice—but continues to replenish its roster with budding players on the verge of professional stardom. In fact, the D-Fenders had a franchise-high six call-ups during the 2011-12 season, earning the Development Champion Award for the team that best develops NBA-level players in-house as opposed to just making current players wear mustaches and claim to be a long-lost twin. With Lakers Girls performances, a full team autograph session after each game, and legendary Lakers announcer Lawrence Tanter doing the announcing, D-Fenders games bring serious star power.
