Watched a Toronto recap, might watch the whole game if there's a torrent. Is there a coach, are there any plays, or they're just running and shooting?

So MarShon Brooks during the Howard trade rumours (in which he would have gone to Clips) played a terrible game where he started 0-10 with 4 turnovers. A few days later after pulling out from the Howard deal, he drops 34 which tied a record or something.

Maybe the rumours had something to do with it?

I watched a lot of the Bobcats game before I left yesterday and MKG looks like the rich mans version of Iguodala. His ball handling and decision making is impressive(as well as the timing on his passes off the dribble), he drives more under control to the basket, and he is who we thought he was on defence. He's going to be a special player.

If he ever fixes that hitch in his shot he could easily become the 3rd best SF in the NBA. But yesterday he even shot his jumper with a lot of confidence so I cant really hate on the form too much if it works.

Interesting... I actually thought he might look much more raw but we'll see once the season starts. Is he as explosive as advertised?

Looks like Barnes had a good game yesterday also.

23points in 25MIN. He shot 8-13 and 4-4 from 3!

From reading around, Barnes, Beal, MKG(BIG TIME), & Ross all had good debuts in their summer league action.

He looked like a vet out there. His handle was the most surprising thing to me. He was explosive yet under control. Hes uber talented yet composed. I'm really impressed.

Not bad, for a last year 21st(+-) pick. Yes, keep drafting Lithuanians!

Mkg is the real deal. He gets in the lane at will. Knocked down a 3. Garnett intense. His handles are top notch. Legit no 2 pick luckily for Charlotte they made the right pick and that wasn't easy everybody had him falling to cleveland

Waiters really struggling so far with the Cavs in their first two games.

7-25 shooting combine in both games.

Jeremy Lamb is putting together a impressive summer league so far:

19pts(7-15O, 1-5 3PT, 4-4FT) 2rebounds in 24MIN
26pts(8-15O, 3-8 3PT, 7-8FT) 4rebounds in 34MIN
16pts(6-11O, 1-4 3PT, 3-3FT) 2rebounds in 26MIN

3games: 20.3PPG 51% FG 29% 3PT 93%FT 2.7RPG in 28MPG

3pt % can use a improvement but shooting well besides that.


EDIT: Terrence Jones has also been doing well for Houston in the summer league

Jeremy Lamb: 3games: 20.3PPG 2.7RPG 51% FG 29% 3PT 93%FT in 28MPG
Terrence Jones: 3games 16.7PPG 7.3PRG 53% FG 50% 3PT 80%FT in 23MPG

From NBA.com

Quote:
July 17 -- There's a real battle for the top rung going on.

For now, Houston guard Jeremy Lamb keeps the top spot, but Portland point guard Damian Lillard is making a strong case.

Tuesday night, the two teams squared off, with Houston's crop of rookies getting the win over Lillard and the Blazers, despite Lillard's 27-point outburst.

Lamb had 23 and six rebounds and got a lot of help from his fellow rookies. Terrence Jones had 24 points and 12 rebounds and climbs six spots to third overall.

And Donatas Motiejunas returns to the Ladder after his 20 and 12 night.

(And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention another Houston rookie, Royce White, who put on a passing display and finished with six points, 12 rebounds and eight assists. Not enough to land him on the Ladder, but still impressive.)

Lamb only has one more game in Las Vegas to solidify his case (Wednesday afternoon against the Bulls), while Lillard will be back in action Thursday. Stay tuned.
Top 10 rookies in summer league:
#1 . Jeremy Lamb - Houston
#2. Damian Lilliard - Portland
#3. Terrence Jones - Houston
#4. Tyshawn Taylor - Brooklyn
#5. Jared Sullinger - Boston
#6. Donatas Motiejunas - Houston
#7. Bradley Beal - Washington
#8. MKG - Bobcats(only played 1 game)
#9. Andrew Nicholson - Orlando
#10. Harrison Barnes - GSW
