So who makes the training camp ? I think they should give Vander Blue a shot.

If Matt Thomas doesn't make it to the NBA, I can totally see him having a great career in Europe.

I would definitely consider giving him that second two-way contract, just because of the way he shoots the 3 ball

 I haven't seen anyone handing out championship rings, or hanging banners for it.

 

IDK - I might get a t-shirt.

Jud Buechler is the new Becky Hammon

or mr. sexy back

 

I wouldn't say completely meaningless. Some chemistry is built as well as individual player development.

true. they unified together as ONE!

 

If Summer League is completely meaningless, then we don't know if Ball was the right choice or if Kuzma was a steal or if Caruso is a backup PG.

TRUE ALSO!

First thought seeing this pic was -- Its Vegas. They couldn't find alcohol?

2nd thought -- Oh. Kids all under 21. Blunts and brownies for everyone

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Most of em are under 21. If they busted out champagne, the next pic would be Jud being led away in cuffs :)

Funny how politics works. Kuz Balls out in basically every game. Ball misses a games, has a crappy game 1 and Kuz makes 2nd team summer league

It's not an apples to apples comparison here. Ball had to play better than other guards in SL. Over 7 games he shows he was one of the best guards. Kuzma is a forward. He had a lot more players he had to prove he was better than. 

 

Dennis smith jr and Lonzo were the guards on the first team. Josh Jackson and Caleb Swanigan were the forwards and collins was the center. 

 

Tatum balled out during SL and he only made the second team as well. tbh i thought kuzma and tatum were better than jackson. one of those two should've been on the first team. he still got summer league finals mvp so idk if he feels snubbed or not, but i just want him to keep brining it. he's definitely played his way into the discussion for minutes on the main rotation though so it'll be interesting to see him in training camp. nance jr better bring his A game if he doesn't want to lose his spot to kuzma

The voting was before the Finals. If it was after the Finals, I think Kuzma would have made the first team.

True, Kuzma was better than swanigan in that game and its hard to justify giving first team to swanigan when his team loses. I mean swanigan had a good game, but Kuzma just beasted. 6/10 on 3s, 11/16 overall. 10 rebounds as well.

Lonzo made the Summer League a WHOLE lot of money, something neither Randle, Russell nor Ingram did...not even Ben Simmons was as big a draw.

 

That MVP was as much of a "Thank You" for their bank accounts as Ball's actual performance.
