The NBA D-League season wrapped up Wednesday evening as the Sioux Falls Skyforce -- the team that knocked our own Westchester Knicks out of the first round of the playoffs -- claimed the title with a 91-63 win over the Los Angeles D-Fenders. If you're going to get beat in the postseason, you might as well get beat by the champs.
The W-Knicks were shut out of all the major awards, but they did land two players -- guard Jimmer Fredette and center Jordan Bachynski -- on the All D-League teams:

Second team for Jimmer, third team for Bachynski. The big man also received All-Defense honors:

Jimmer has already gone on the record as saying he probably won't play in the D-League next season. As for Bachynski, it's hard to believe a defensive-minded 7-footer with decent post game won't get a look from an NBA club. No matter what happens this summer, Fredette and Bachynski gave Westchester fans a hell of a show in 2015-16.
