    Des Moines, IA (April 15, 2009) – The Iowa Energy announced today

    fortunate to have them as our official playoff sponsor. The gesture

    Great promotion. I hope the Energy gets a good crowd for the playoffs. I'm not sure people realize how good of basketball is played in the D League. From a pure athletic stand-point is quite a bit better than D-1 in my opinion. It's a fun game to watch. If I was in DSM, I would definitely find a way to go.

    I am serious. Why do you think they are boring?

    I get that you may not have a rooting interest and thus it can be not as captivating, but the athleticism is way better than you would see at a regular college basketball game.

    I guess I'm curious more than anything why people think Energy games are boring?

    There is no defense! Same reason I don't like the NBA. I like watching Curtis, but the games are terrible! My buddy and I sat and laughed at how bad the game was.
