So Zion is putting on a show but if you are watching it he has been blocked 3 times which is something I was wondering would happen as he adjusts to NBA life, he really needs to fix his shooting if he wants to be a star he can't shoot so slow and flat in the NBA

If only what had could have been for the Suns.

Oh boy, the hot takes of summer league.

Not trying to pick on you Yuma but every season there are some wild statements made about what is generally an exhibition tournament with a level of play so terrible that it is almost impossible to project anything from.

I swear, I should go back through Summer Leagues of year's gone by. Kelly Olynuk had locked up rookie of the year by halftime of his first summer league game according to one poster, Kevin Knox was the steal of the draft last year, Trevon Duval was going to make CP3 expendable.

And of course, our own future stud, Dionte Christmas.
What's really bad is when they SUCK in Summer League. It's almost a relief for teams like Chicago when a Coby White looks good against this level of competition.

Ball dominating players tend to look good in summer league, guys who play off the ball tend to not look so hot because there are so many ball hogs out there desperate for attention.

I didn't watch the game but White was 6-18 (0-7 from 3 point range) and only had 3 assists against the Lakers.

Those assists seem low. He had several steals, too.

Watching Minnesota and ATL right now, Hunter hasn't looked to good in this one , Josh okogie looks like a player primed for a breakout year though, we should have traded for him and 11 for #6

Also not sure if mentioned but taco fall looked impressive his 1st gm think 11 pts 2 rebounds 1 block not bad for a undrafted rookie

I think if fall spends some time in dleague he could be a decent player

It was silly for that guy to go undrafted. He has more mobility than Boban.

Crazy how he doesn't look 7'7", like how some big/tall guys are look disproportionate, Fall looks like a normal person just scaled up. Not sure if that makes any sense.

But it's amazing how he can just stand there from the "charge/blocking" line and dunk it, almost a standing dunk.

Yeah it blows my mind Fall goes undrafted. How is there not a spot for that guy an an nba floor?

Not many guys have the confidence or the skill to go all the way to the rack with that guy standing there. Not to mention most teams dont even carey a big these days that can keep him from easy layups

I proclaimed Kris Dunn as ROY based on his summer league play a few years ago.
