random deafsports thoughts

there were some tweets that said that Vino Buckendahl, who was
said to be deaf, is playing in the NBA G League.

DeafDigest Sports editor never heard of Buckendahl, and
asked around and they all said they never heard of him, too!

DeafDigest Sports editor did some additional googling and
it was learned he attended Michigan School for the Deaf.

Maybe someone will come forward with additional information
about his participation in the NBA G League.
