    For me it comes down to if they can pass the eye test. Do they at least look like they belong and, in the case of higher touted draft picks, can they show why they were drafted over the scrubs they are amongst in the game?
    That's what makes a guy like PJ so infuriating. Physically he fits the bill for what you want out of a wing player, but he just can't hit shots and probably because he rarely takes them in the flow of the offense, which I think has been Frank's greatest strength so far. Vonleh was another guy who just looked kind of lost out there even though occasionally you'd see him make a play or two.

    For being such a big LeBron fan you sure do love trying to give us the worst collective basketball IQ possible. First McGee, now this...

    Summer League is not so much a big deal if the draftees/vets are playing well. It's a big deal if theyre playing poorly, as we saw from Vonleh last year and PJ this year. 
    That said, first impression is the top ten of this draft class is going to be really good. Hezonja (5th) Johnson (8th) Kaminsky (9th) Winslow (10th) with very good debuts.

    He's never had a decent offensive roster to work with until now.

    If he is Peja Stojakovic we finally nailed a draft. Just hope he can keep it going.

    IMO unless there's a no-name guy that really breaks out during a game, the critiques should be only for guys that have a real chance to make the squad. That's Frank, PJ, Troy, Harrison, and maybe Craft (spent time at the beginning of last season with the Warriors and in the d-league.)
    Nothing against the other guys, but they are just camp fodder, especially for a team with as many veterans as this final roster will have.

    If we don't call for coaches to be fired and players to be cut and seasons to be over in the SL game threads, we're doing it wrong.

    In still holding out hope that we are waiting for teams to lose out on free agents before quietly offering Al or Marvin in a trade.

    So fans are more enthusiastic about a team that wins 65 games and a championship as opposed to a team that wins 33...

    It's on NBA TV for free ya know. Not worth paying for, but I enjoy it.

    Actually, it should be the opposite. The limit on salaries is what allows players to take pay cuts and join forces. If LeBron hit the open market and was allowed to get his real value to a franchise  (50-75 million a year) the playing field would level out as teams prioritized according to their budgets, similar to baseball.

    As likely the second recipient in NBA history of a 200 million dollar deal (after LeBron) I'm sure the NBPA would be none too happy with him skipping unrestricted free agency. 
    He's one of if not the most underpaid athlete in sports right now.

    And by that time the NBA probably lets us wear the Hardwood Classic unis and you can't say no to the pinstripes.
