2015 NBA Summer League

This year’s summer league has been a good appetizer for fans to get a taste of what the latest newcomers may look like come start of the 2015-2016 NBA regular season. In the Orlando summer league, the Heat’s Justise Winslow, Pistons Stanley Johnson and Magic’s Mario Hezonja showed glimpse of impressive play. Each baller lived up to the hype as lottery picks especially Hezonja as he was able to show the fans that he has bounce and can jump out of the gym. But it was a forgotten college basketball phenom who stole the show and may have solidify a spot and opportunity to receive greater responsibilities on the roster on a NBA franchise. Louisville Cardinal great Russ Smith was the man of the tournament for the Memphis Grizzlies. Displaying poise, crafty scoring ability and sneaky defensive awareness, the Brooklyn native known as “Russdiculous” had his presence be known by leading the Grizz to a Orlando Summer League title. But the real story and highlight of the NBA off season occurred in Las Vegas. Gregg Popovich is continuing to prove to everyone that no matter what or how you attempt to do it, like a Shaquille O’neal song…YOU CAN’T STOP THE REIGN! Even though his team was eliminated early in the playoffs, Pop was able to take a major risk in hiring WNBA legend Becky Hammon. Hammon proved to the world that sometimes it takes a lady to do a man’s job. The former NY Liberty sharp shooter was able to take a sip out of the Poppo-Cola and led her Spurs summer league squad to a title. “Slo Mo” Kyle Anderson brought his elusive crafy point forward ways by making jaw dropping dead eye behind the back passes for easy layups. The former UCLA Bruin showed why he was named Summer league MVP by proving to fans that a consistent slow and steady pace can win you ball games. Another winner out of this spectacular showcase: Seth Curry. The baby bro of the reigning league MVP was putting on a shooting clinic which led to him being signed by the Sacramento Kings. The Curry family can’t do no wrong.
