    Originally (2001-2005), it was called the National Basketball Development League (NBDL)

    In 2005, it was changed to the National Basketball Association Development League (NBA D-League)

    Now, it's the G-League:

    NBA makes it official: D-League is now the G League

    There are a few new rules, the most notable one is the two-way contract. Here is a nice overview:

    It will be interesting to see how Bowser/SVG use those extra roster spots.

    The "G" in G-League stands for Gatorade, by the way.

    Pretty smart. It will be hard for them to move to a new sponsor in the future... unless it also starts with a G.

    Although geriatric league also fits.
