    It's a little embarrassing that he thinks the refs let more go in the Italian league than here.

    NBA is softening.


    Glad we got rid of that hack.

    Don't get really excited about our players,becouse a lot of players look great in Summer League,but when it comes to the real deal almost 90% of them suck.

    Deron Washington is an absolute psycho athlete. Too bad the guy can't shoot a lick.

    It's nothing that can't be improved, but it'll probably take some time/a good coach.

    Perhaps, but what may also be true is that if you can't stand out in Summer League, there's no hope for you with the big boys. At least we've got a couple players with some hope.

    Thanks Mikhail for the updates. I knew Summers would be a beast in the NBA and doesn't hurt that he comes from good collegiate stock JT3 out of Georgetown.

    Hopefully this trend will continue and translate into some serious burn for both Summers and Daye when the season begins.

    It is also good to know that Summers can and probably will spend a great deal of time at PF.

    If Daye and Summers would play half of the game they are playing in Summer League,I think we have more options in 2010 offseason.

    Here is the thing about summer league. Guys who show well, have a chance in the NBA. Guys who don't, have no chance.

    So while Daye and Summers are playing well, that is very positive. But no guarantee. Alex Acker and Maxiell lit up the SL too a few years ago.

    Kuester sure is coaching up a storm, eh? ;)
