When the final buzzer sounded and Fort Wayne could celebrate its first-ever NBA D-League title, Ron Howard immediately found Mad Ants President Jeff Potter and gave him a hug.

In that moment, a weight — one that maybe only the two of them could truly understand — was lifted. The losing seasons and disappointments that had piled up in previous years seemingly disappeared as the player who embodies the franchise and the executive that runs it finally reached the top together.

Fort Wayne defeated Santa Cruz, 119-113, in Game 2 of the NBA D-League Finals to complete a series sweep behind 32 points from Tony Mitchell and 23 from Howard.
