I know it doesn't mean anything but Elfrid Payton looks pretty awful so far.

I didn't get to see it but Smart had 5 steals. Napier ended with 8 so wouldn't be shocked if that was Smart's doing based on the stats.

Nerlens Noel looking good offensively but not so well on the boards.

Elfrid Payton and Aaron Gordon look atrocious... haha

Agreed. His offensive game needs lots of work. But his post/perimeter D as well as athleticism were apparent.

Noel was looking good.

Payton:

the summer league PG Defense is real impressive, Payton struggled against it.  super quick raw players playing all out defensively 3/4 of the court pressuring the ball. all of the PGs had trouble starting offense where they should, they all picked up their dribbles way too early. im not going to judge Payton too much, BUT, he showed at the least that he's not special off the dribble. dont put your money on him to do much at all offensively this year ( although some people argued he was better than M.Smart offensively. doesnt look like it at all.) he looks average.

Aaron Gordon airballed his first two shots, a 10 foot flip shot, and then a 3pointer. EW. he also showed a shaky handle. he only had one nice play all game. he also clanked a FT off the left backboard, barely hit the rim.
every aspect of his offensive game is average ( alot of people thought his handle would have him making alot of plays)

 

Noel was real impressive. he looked real quick offensively, and displayed a nice touch in the paint. also looked GREAT on D , he pokes balls away and gets steals like crazy. didnt know that.

Yeah shabazz couldn't have had a worse debut but he had smart and pressey on him. He was doomed from the get go.
