Our local National Basketball Development League team, the Roanoke Dazzle, is on the chopping block. The Dazzle and the Fayetteville (NC) Patriots are the only NBA-owned teams left in the NBDL, and one will have to give up its membership to the new expansion team, the Bakersfield Jam.
Frequent steve's blog poster Weill Casey feels the Dazzle need to be saved. Attendance is up in the high 3,000's as of late and they show a promising future. If you could do me (and the city of Roanoke) a favor by signing an online petition for my friend Weill, I would appreciate it.
