Anyone else watching? I realized no one is discussing the no names in summer league but it is interesting.
So far I have been keeping tabs on a few rookies as well as recognizable names. Most of this is just the "eye test".
Boston vs Orlando(thur)
I am really impressed with point guard Elfrid Payton for Orlando. He is a smooth confident player with great control. He floor vision is great and he seems to get by guys easily as a pass first and second pg. 9rebs and 9 assists in the third qtr now.
Marcus Smart is a little lost on offense as he just does his bull rush drives to the basket. His outside shot needs a lot of work as it will be no threat anytime soon. He is a smothering elite perimeter defender. You see that 6'9 wingspan frustrate a few perimeter guys. As I type this Smart comes off a pick and drains a couple of threes like he does it in his sleep. Im going by seeing him for the third time now in summer league...where his shooting has been awful.
When Seth Curry gets his feet set he gets effortless threes. He had a good first half but Marcus Smart on him exposes his limited speed/ball handling.
Seth Curry is not the only kid of NBA players in this summer leage as Jimmy Jackson's son and Paul Pressey's son are playing. Both have natural ability and have great feel for a couple of dudes in a pickup bball game style that is summer league.
Pressey had an impressive game vs Philly but not hitting shots this game..he is getting by guys and has great moves to get to the basket but not finishing as shots are half down and rimming out.
