Golden State Warriors V Philadelphia 76ers Vegas 08
It's that time again during the summer where the young guys go to Vegas and party, I mean, play basketball. It's our first glance at the new draft picks Randolph and Hendrix and a look at some of the players that wish to earn a Training Camp invite. Yep thats what the Summer League is all about.
There will be five games played one of which will be on NBA TV
Golden State V Philadelphia
Dallas v Golden State NBATV
Charlotte V Golden State
Sacramento V Golden State
Golden State V Toronto
As we all know, Summer League don't mean squat. But whatever, it's still fun to get excited about Marco scoring 37, Brandan Wright going double double style, Randolph showing off the goods, and CJ Watson dropping double digit dimes. Well as I'm writing this, holy toledo, Anthony Randolph has 10 points and 3 boards in 17 minutes. I smell Rookie of the Year.
Can't wait to see how Demarcus Nelson and Louis Amundson get on two I perdict that have a chance at a Training Camp invite. Anyways, if you're in Vegas, find time to pull yourself away from the strip clubs, buffet lines and casinos for a chance to catch the first glimpse of your 2008-2009 W's. You never know what you might see
You can watch the game online at this link or at the NBA.com site
Warriors up by 3 as I type!
