Professional Basketball Returns to Greensboro

CLICK HERE for the news on the Charlotte Hornets choosing to bring their D-League team to Greensboro…

Greensboro hosted professional basketball when the Carolina Cougars of the ABA played here back in the 70’s and we had a team in the Global Basketball League, with the Greensboro City Gaters at the Greensboro Coliseum, back in the early 90’s….Cougars with Jim Gardner, Ted Munchack and others among the owners, Greensboro Gaters with Joe Moore family in ownership and the Hornets with Michael Jordan in owner’s box….

Fred Whitfield, the CEO for the Charlotte Hornets, has a chance to bring the NBA D-League team back to his old home town….Maybe we will see some P.J. Hairston appearances with the Greensboro team, coming in on loan from the Charlotte Hornets….

Just picked up on this link and CLICK HERE for Jeff Mills from the News and Record on the NBA D-League coming to Greensboro….
