Summer League Basketball

Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News wrote a fine article on this wonderful Philadelphia-area tradition. There is something uniquely, well, basketball, about the City of Philadelphia. Lots of good players, lots of good places to get a good run in, traditions handed down from generation to generation.

And, well, in the age of our knowing too much about our athletes, too much commercialization about our sports and the pro game's having become too much about entertainment, leagues like these are special.
