SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – The Santa Cruz Warriors have acquired a third-round draft pick in the 2013 NBA D-League Draft from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in exchange for forward Tommy Smith.
Smith was awarded a Santa Cruz Warriors training camp roster spot earlier today as a returning player. In the 2011-2012 season, the 6’10’’ forward averaged 7.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 38 games with the Dakota Wizards.
There's a team called the Mad Ants?
Come on. This must be a joke, right? Do other teams bring cans of Raid to the games?
I can't wait to see their T-shirts. I must have one when they come to play.
What's next? Hummingbirds?
OMG: Go here to see their mascot. So bad, it's brilliant. It's as bad as that crab that used to run around Candlestick.
Here's the Mad Ant Mascot's biography. If D-League B-Ball is all this fun, I may like it.
