You might not get too many chances to watch the D-League's finest go to work while NBA action is taking place, so make sure you tune in and catch the best they have to offer when the league's All-Stars take center stage.
Pierre Jackson, Manny Harris and the rest of the top players in the lesser league will be putting their talents on full display when the D-League All-Star Game starts at 3 p.m. ET Saturday on NBA TV.
That said, not all of the standouts are going to be NBA players. A handful of guys are hidden gems just waiting to advance to the sport's highest level, and those are the ones we'll be focusing on here.
As a procedural note, every single player on the roster is eligible to be considered a "hidden gem." If you're playing in the D-League, you're pretty darn hidden from the average fan, even if your name carries some sort of recognition.
Don't make the mistake of waiting until the NBA action begins at 8 p.m. ET. Tune in a few hours earlier and do your best to familiarize yourself with the best of the best in the D-League.
