Summer League: Bucks vs Cavs
Fun game going on right now between Bucks and Cavs. Wiggins is looking pretty good with 18 points in 23 minutes. Parker, Bennett, and the Freak are also making solid impressions.
It is a great game to watch in terms of talent.
It is a bit sloppy, but great to watch these young guys play.
Wiggins looks good when not forcing 3s, Bennett looks great too. I like the looks of Parker as well.
Also Delly has also become one of my favourite players to watch. He just does all the hard things and is a great leaker out there.
Very good game so far and a great bonus to see the two top picks this year battling it out. Bennett looks sharper than last season already and the Greek Freak is always fun to watch.
One thing that just occured to me, I wonder how much Jason Kidd will be able to improve the Greek Freak's point skills when he really gets working with him. With his insane length and great skillset already, Kidd could turn him into the next Mr Triple Double.
I'm glad Bennett looked solid and in good shape. Felt bad for him when people were saying he might be the worst first pick ever.
Charlotte 1st rounders giving him a run for his money. Vonleh 0-13 and PJ Hairston is 2-16. 2-29 combined. I liked the picks and they were well praised but these are two of the poorest shooting performances since Bennett last year. Good to see a fellow Canadian bounce back. I'm sure Charlootes picks come back stronger and just a bad game.
I thought both Parker and Wiggins looked good. I think Jabari needs a bit more conditioning but overall he played really good. Wiggins has to get a bit bigger but to my surprise he played good as well. The future of the NBA is ver bright with up and coming players like these two...
I honestly think Giannis has more potential than Wiggins or Jabari. Dude has a solid handle, is a great playmaker for his size, can shoot, is crazy athetlic and obviously defensively has the tools to guard guys like KD and Paul George. Probably has a lower floor too than both though.
Giannis is only a few months older than wiggins and parker, so they are basically the same age. I think he is as good of a prospect as both of them. I didn't realize he was that good. You pretty much said it. He can shoot, be a playmaker and is going to be a great defender. The Bucks have a very bright future with him and Parker. He was bringing the ball up the court at 6-11 and being 19 and he looked pretty comfortable doing it. He definately has it like Parker and Wiggins, it will be great watching them grow as players. Also I think I just became a Bucks fan to go along with being a Twolves fan now.
I like the fact has a ton of confidence. It seemed to me he thought he was the best player on the floor. Milwaukee should be in position to do better but still should have a top pick next year. If they could get mudialy(spelt the wrong I'm sure) they would be in good shape going forward.
The Cavs could have 4 top picks in their starting line up on opening night, that would be some sort I reckon I'd think.
Vonleh had a nightmare shooting game but I'm not judging him on 30 minutes play, he's very much a prospect and his main role may be on defence initially. The Hornets ( have to remember to type this on not Bobcats) can work on his shooting with him, they have Pat Ewing one of the best scoring big men ever as an Assistant Coach who I'd think would be an ideal man to work one to one with Vonleh. Don't forget that Vonleh is still only 18 so he can be used sparingly during his rookie year if needs be to allow time to refine his game. Coach Clifford has worked worked with numerous top big men down the years so can spend time with him, Al Jefferson can be a good mentor and MJ can always pass on a few shooting tips if needed.
I'm certainly looking forward to seeing Jabari Parker and the Greek Freak in tandem this coming year and as PaulsJayhawks says above if the Bucks happened to land someone like Mudiay next summer that would be a great trio going forward.
I hate to talk about players landing on a team a year in advance but Mudiay after having defence drilled into him y Coach Larry Brown for a year to then have Jason Kidd to oversee his NBA career wold be a perfect fit for him.
Both of these Summer League teams are better than the 76ers NBbA Rosters.
