Babb Leads Red Claws Talent List
12 Maine Red Claws players will continue to chase the dream when the NBA Development League season tips off at the Portland Expo Friday night. The dream is to play in the NBA someday and the D-League is their ticket to getting more pro experience and exposure.
The Red Claws is affiliated with the Boston Celtics. A couple of the players were in C's training camp, like guard Chris Babb, who played his college ball at Iowa State. The fact is any team can offer Babb a NBA contract when he's ready.
102 of today's NBA players have some D-League experience.
Mike Taylor begins his second year as Red Claws coach. Maine had a 26-24 record and made the league playoffs for the first time in franchise history.
The Red Claws open Friday against the Springfield(Mass) Armor.
