Looking to watch some semi-pro basketball? Go watch the Bakersfield Jam. The Jam are part of the NBA Developmental league where NBA teams are affiliated with teams in the league. Teams that are affiliated with the Bakersfield Jam are the Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Phonix Suns, and Toronto Raptors.

Bakersfield Jam started in 2009 as an expansion team to the NBA Developmental league. The D-league chose to put a team here because of of success of all the Lakers per-season games here. With all the pre-season games success they decided to see if Bakersfield can handle a D-league team first before they chose to but a real NBA team here in Bakersfield.

Though the Jam season is over, they finished with the best record in the Western Division, having winning the Western Division title. The team also finished the season with having six of the players getting All-NBA D-league selections.

With the season over, people will have to wait till November to watch the Bakersfield Jam. The new season starts in November and things look to be good for the Jam with being the defending Western Division champions. Now they look to become NBA D-league champions.

    The three years that I have been living in Bakersfield and play basketball, I have not once been to a Bakersfield Jam basketball game. I always hear about how good and intense these games are and always wanted to go, but never had the chance. I think its interesting how Bakersfield really is getting somewhere and how there are professional teams out here!
