Pro Basketball in Puerto Rico
I had the pleasure this week of spending time with the Arecibo Capitanes of the Baloncestro Superior National League (BSN) in Puerto Rico.
The BSN has long been known as a high caliber league that has been fertile ground for players and coaches trying to make a name for themselves. Before the advent of the NBA Summer League, this was the place to be if you wanted to get noticed. Because it is a spring/summer league it has provided opportunity for college players to be seen before NBA training camps, free agent players trying to catch on and coaches to gain experience. It also gives players a chance to play a season, be seen and then go to a country that plays a traditional winter season
