This game is depressing, except for the referees.

Ware looks really good. Perfect C for the modern game.

Yep. Miami hardly ever misses on their picks. Ware could easily become a better version of Derick Lively. Given that they paid Bam a ton of money not sure where he fits tho long term

It's why they're in the SL. Keep them in the SL. I didn't know the "Laker pressure" exists in SL too.

Instead of shrimp, from Forrest Gump...the spurs are better than us, the hornets are better than us, the Chinese are better than us, the warriors are better than us, the queens are better than us, the kings are better than us....

Edey doesn’t look as massive in the NBA as he did in college. He looks like he’s lost weight and gotten thinner since I last seen him play

Edey looks good. Showing exactly why he went top 10.

Scottie Pippen Jr will be a rotation player for the Grizzles.

Good game between the Grizzlies and Utah. Kessler ended up having a good night and Edey played exactly his game.

K. George is cocky but had a game to back it up.


Fun game to watch.

The weight loss is glaring. Just visually watching him at Purdue felt like going back to 56k internet. Now he moves at warp speed in comparison. Had some nice second jumps too.

idk about young Pip. Opposition gets by him and he's too short
to cover that space with arm length. He's serviceable if your short
handed, I guess.


Again, for me a good game to watch --enjoyed it.

I would not be shocked if he turned out to be the best player in this draft

They will improve in Vegas, but yea... this is the worst summer league team I've seen in some time, and I'm usually excited for our Laker picks.

Hopefully will be better looking at at least a little bit in Las Vegas.

No PG or Offense = poor FG%

Only LBjr is a defender.

Pretty much expected outcomes.

Really could have used JHS, to see his progress and SL team is allergic to scoring. Rehab kills his trade stock too.

There are a lot of extremely concerned faces around DaRon Holmes II right now. Michael Malone was called over before the final buzzer, and Holmes’ parents were just brought over. The official injury designation during the game was right Achilles tightness.

Coaching summer league is beneath him. He’s an entitled brat. Let’s see if he can get the players rowing in the same direction come October-November.
