It looks like there will be a league for NBA stars to play in this fall.
No, sadly it is not the NBA, as that lockout continues, but there is a new league forming in Las Vegas called the the Impact league.
The league will feature 70 NBA players and the Suns’ Jared Dudley will be one of them.
“It will start in September with two games a day,” Dudley said in an interview with Hoopsworld. “There will be a blend of all-stars, veterans and rookies.”
The Impact League was set up by Impact Basketball, which is one of the best training sites in the world. Players that could play in the league include Kevin Garnett, Rudy Gay, Rajon Rondo, Chauncey Billups and Tyreke Evans.
The league will kickoff in mid-September and should last for at least two weeks.
The Impact league will be different than the summer pro-ams in that there will only be NBA players participating.
“It really gets guys ready for the NBA season,” Dudley said. “I’m excited every summer because at Impact you can only get better, now the games are there to put what you learn into action on the court.”
