That was more like it. Maybe they’re not all total busts even for summer leaguers.

Probably helps that i never heard of anyone on The Lakes Summer team.  But looks like the Knix yute were in a groove.  The Kadeem Team!

Knix Summer team with same record as Team China!

Quote
The Chinese (1-2) lost their first two games in Las Vegas — they fell by 41 points to Miami on Friday, and looked much better in a 17-point loss to Sacramento on Saturday. They trailed by six in the opening minutes against Charlotte on Monday, then took the lead late in the first quarter and held it the rest of the way.

“We’re still improving a lot,” Li said. “We improved a lot when we came here. The first game we weren’t ready for the physical game, the fast game. The second game, on a back to back, we started realizing some things.”

The players China brought to Las Vegas represent the bulk of what will be the nation’s World Cup roster. Longtime NBA player Yi Jianlian is expected to play in the World Cup, and he’s not playing in Las Vegas because of an injury. Guo Ailun, one of the more talented Chinese players, didn’t play against Miami, scored 20 points against Sacramento and had 12 more in the win over the Hornets.

The intensity of the game is really high in the summer league,” Guo said through a translator before Monday’s game. “It’s much stronger than what is in China. ... The intensity, the pace, it’s really a challenge.”

A lack of D and getting after it in China.
Though they see the energy that the American imports play with in China.  In G-League guys are competing for NBA $$.

How to self-destroy

Yeah, it starts by being cheap and let go of the Beard to save some money. Can you imagine what woulda been if they kept all three? Almost as self-destructive as you-know-who.

Is Houston now the favorite with Russ instead of Paul?

Will be moved again. You traded Russ because he is 30 and you're rebuilding.  You don't swap a 30 yr old for a 34 yr old and call it a day.

Who’s taking Chris at this point?

Made it to Vegas for summer league games today. Celtics were fun. Both Williams bigs looked good. Robert was the dominant player vs the Grizz. Tacko can play. He’ll be ok in a year. They have a guy who shoots his free throws underhanded. It was pretty cool to watch.

Welcome Marcus Morris.

Knockout rounds tomorrow

Very interesting.
The Rockettes always make Big Moves.
It seemed the CP3/Harden dynamic wasn't reparable.
I thought Dantmanbee did a good job of separating them as much as possible to let each guy do his own on-ball thing.
CP3 is kind of a jerk, but I'd be annoyed too standing around watching a guy pound and drain the shot clock every possession.  Even if he was able to score like a machine.  Just boring stuff when you're out there.

OKC will try to move Paul.  MIA is the early chatter.


I feel bad about poaching Morris, when we don't need him.
SAS not only lost out on a solid player, but they moved Bertans to have the space to sign Morris.  So they lost out on two players.  And Knix bumble in and pickpocket them.  I can understand Morris wanting another $5M, but it all seems rather seedy.

Looking like Miami

They can take Dragic and a pick - then move Dragic for more picks

heh

The Chris Paul contract was ridiculous from the start.  Too old to give a 4 year contract to.

Felt bad about Morris?

Come on!

Spurs just move on and sign Trey Lyles.

I'd rather have Bertans than Trey Lyles.

I might prefer Bert over Morris, but depends on your team construct and cost.

So right now the Knicks have some 14 players with contracts who expect to see real minutes.

How is that going to work? How do you avoid bitterness and resentment?
