July 2, , today is the second day of the official opening of the NBA free market.
The madness of the free market made the fans overwhelmed and excited.
But in today’s NBA, in addition to the free market that deserves attention, there is also a summer league that is as exciting as the player trading and signing drama.
The summer league is not considered an official league, and the performance and statistics of players in the summer league will not be counted into career performance.
However, the summer league is an excellent stage for rookies and young people who have just entered the NBA to express themselves and show their strength.
In the just-concluded NBA Summer League game, the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 97-89 by 8 points.
In this game, the Cavaliers’ two high-profile rookies, Kevin Porter and Garland, did not play; however, the Spurs sent all the rookies selected this year to test their quality.
The Spurs also put the rookie selected last year, Lonnie Walker, known as the potted brother, into the game. The gap in lineup strength allowed the Spurs to successfully win the first game of the summer league.
Personal data of both players: For the Cavaliers, Dylan Windler made 8 of 14 shots and 3 of 8 three-pointers, scoring 19 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. The rookie selected by the Cavaliers with the 26th pick has a promising future
In addition, Lang also scored 16 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists; for the Spurs, Potted Brother played 29 minutes, 8 of 12 shots, 4 of 6 free throws, and scored a team-high 20 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Drew played 19 minutes
, 13 points and 4 rebounds on 3 of 4 shots.
Although the summer league is regarded as a rookie, but the players on the field are still very hard-working.
20 points on 12 shots, playing like Leonard!
Popovich is amazing, the Spurs have another leader.
The Spurs’ potted Gronny Walker is undoubtedly the focus of the audience.
In this game, Walker’s three-pointer feeling is not good, and he didn’t make a single three-pointer, but he is a solid mid-range shot.
The turnaround jumper looks like it was sculpted by Popovich and the Spurs shooting coach.
At the same time, Walker’s ability to shoot against defense is also very strong. Breakthroughs, dunks, and speed all make fans think of one person: Kawhi Leonard.
20+7 led the team to win, the mid-range shot was like Tracy McGrady, Popovich had a good vision, and the Spurs also had talent.
Walker has Leonard’s firm will and mid-range shooting ability, as well as McGrady’s breakthrough skills. In fact, his mid-range shot is more elegant and agile than Leonard’s, and it is also full of McGrady’s shadow.
Therefore, some players said that Walker is a replica of Tracy McGrady.
But at the end of the day, all the praise needs to be given to Popovich and the Spurs.
It is the Spurs’ vision and Popovich’s training that allowed the Spurs to acquire such an outstanding young man with leadership potential. From then on, the Spurs also have young talents!
