    You'll have to pick a different example of a basketball outpost the next time you write a story about a former college star.

    The five-time CBA champion Yakama Sun Kings have suspended operations:

    By the way, this doesn't bode well for the rest of the league either.

    Does Yakima hand the title of Basketball Outpost to the Great Falls Explorers or the Butte Daredevils?

    I was thinking the Minot Skyrockets.

    I still have a warm spot in my heart for the Wichita Falls Texans.

    These guys tried to hire me as their PR director right after I got out of college about 20 years ago. Even at that gullible stage in my life I knew these doucherockets were full of fail.

    And yeah, it was a direct spin off of the Coors Light Silver Bullet ad campaign.

    I'm probably one of the few people who remember the Santa Barbara Islanders, who put up stakes in my county in 1989 and then disappeared after one season.

    I went to one game. They had U.S. Olympian/current NBA referee Leon Wood and lesser-know brother Derrick Gervin on the team.

    I knew they were doomed when they spelled the name of their own city wrong. Yakima, Yakama. Yakkity yak, don't talk back.

    I don't need to kick around the Sun Kings, but I'll kick around the town all I want. That place is an absolute shitbin.

    Yakima is the city...Yakama is the name of the local tribe.

    Now take out the papers and the trash...or you don't get no spendin' cash
