    The guy had a bad first game, sure. But in the second game he was amazing but he got hurt and has not played since.

    Miles is a lot better offensive player than I expected. He's "miles" ahead of Jeff Foster in that regard. I've seen him score in a variety of ways and he's shot a high percentage (.526).
    I have to say that he is nothing like what I expected. He is more polished offensively than I thought he would be. Especially, his jumper. But his a worse rebounder than I expected as well. It's a weird summer league

    Love me some John Jenkins shooting he is looking like he did at Vandy today lights out.

    Wizs and Beal are getting ran out of the gym.

    EDIT: Beal's handle looks so much better than it did at FL. That system wasnt good for his game he should be better if the Wiz use him right.

    Terrence Jones, Machado and Jeremy Lamb coming off the bench interesting. HOU has a loaded SL squad considering how many young guys they have on their team.

    I cant wait till wednesday my 2 favorite pgs go head to head Machado vs Lillard (also Will Barton)

    Most of his shots are going towards the rim. I can't imagine him not shooting a good percentage.

    Enough for what? When he was drafted I don't think it was to average 25 ppg.

    He was drafted primarily as an elite wing defender who could rebound his position well and contribute in a transition game.

    I have a feeling Brian Shaw will be going to Portland. Neil Olshey confirmed he wants a great teacher who realtes well to players. Shaw fits the bill perfectly and the Lillard Shaw connection (Shaw is Lillard's mentor of sorts)would be a great fit.


    speaking of my boy Damian tonight man he came up clutch. He played awful for the most part but again showed why I love the guy so calm and cool tough he competes and never too high or low. He just didnt shoot the ball like he normally does(Like OJ he is a great shooter his bad shooting wont bother me every shooter has off nights or slumps)

    Probably my favorite pg I have ever scouted I just love everything about the kid if I was a coach I would really love that guy as my pg and team leader. So smart high IQ I just love everything he does on a basketball court. The way he changes speed is an art and a skill he and Tony Parker do it better than anyone. I love my guards who can play at 8-10 different speeds and the know when to use each speed it truly is an art. Can make an average speed guy like Rubio play really quick and fast. It makes good athletes like Lillard unstoppable off the dribble. putting a defender to sleep is probably my favorite thing a great pg does when you can do that it makes you so much more versatile. Most guards like DC and Hill play way to fast and dont know when to play super fast and when to slow down. DC is especially bad about it.



    I loved what Myers Leonard showed tonight I didn't know he could play that hard. He ran the floor better than college and really helped the team by just running rim to rim. He didn't get many touches but I loved what I saw. He was overly physical and I didnt think that would be a problem LOL. He is still a big time project likely 2-3 years away from being good but I love his upside and potential skill set.


    But him taking Arvydas Sabonis #11


    you gotta earn that # IMO



    Dr. , Marshall has contract issues it's kind of every lottery guy gets 120% of the scale should of been done the day after draft night really. Maybe Starver is getting cheap again?? I dont know it really is weird.

    James White has already put up two stinkers for the NYK. Being a preseason cut twice after signing two separate guaranteed contracts would be some kind of rare achievement

    my man Scott Machado finally looked semi-comfortable today. He still didnt look normal but playing with 12 new guys will do that to you. Rockets arent a good fit ethier Royce White and Terrence Jones are so ball dominate on his unit hard for him to play his game. When he plays with 2 other point forwards and guys who never catch his passes because they aren't use to guys making those kind of passes.


    I hope a team gives him a chance he will be fine once he learns his teammates and gets into a NBA training camp.

    EDIT: and Dontas showed in his past 3 games why I had trouble scouting him. One game he looks like the next Dirk with a motor. The next game he looks like a poor mans Darko it may be age. But he looks the exact same as he did in Euro when I scouted him dude is an enigma. I have no clue how he will pan out but it's just weird how half the time he doesn't show up and the other half he almost cant be stopped.

    Article from Conrad Brunner about the Pacers summer league players.

    Indianapolis -- Summer league basketball is akin to minor league baseball. It's less about wins and losses than player development and evaluation.

    The Indiana Pacers aren't sweating their 2-3 record in the recently concluded Orlando Pro Summer League because they got exactly what they wanted from the week in Florida -- long looks at third-year guard Lance Stephenson as well as rookies Miles Plumlee and Orlando Johnson.

    For the most part, they liked what they saw.

    Stephenson continued to build the case he is ready for a regular role off the bench, leading the team in scoring (19.8) and assists (4.8), not to mention turnovers (3.5). He shot .526 overall but continued to struggle for consistency behind the 3-point line, shooting 5 of 17 (.294).

    "He's ready to get his shot," Coach Frank Vogel said. "The moves we made on our bench are setting him up to be the backup shooting guard and he's going to get the opportunity to go into training camp with that as his role.

    "It's time for us to find out, to really find out, about Lance Stephenson. We feel like we've got some guys around him in Gerald Green and D.J. Augustin -- two laser 3-point shooters -- that are just going create space for him to go to work. We're looking forward to seeing him come in and take the next step."

    Plumlee showed little of the advertised characteristics that led to his surprise selection at No. 26 overall -- defense, rebounding and a Jeff Foster-like aggression. Instead, he primarily showcased his offensive game, averaging 13.0 points on 46 percent shooting while also pulling 6.6 rebounds 31.6 minutes.

    With the acquisition of veteran Ian Mahinmi from Dallas last week, the pressure is off Plumlee to fill the backup center role right way.

    "I thought Plumlee had a better week than I expected," Vogel said. "I thought he showed a better touch at shooting the mid-range jump shot than I thought he had. He showed more of a low-post game than I really thought he had. He made some impressive offensive plays. He showed us more than what we thought. His athleticism and finishing at the rim was what we expected. We knew he's a great dunker and finisher and exciting in that regard.

    "He rebounded the ball pretty well. We want to see him be a dominant rebounder. He wasn't terrible, he was pretty good. But overall, very excited about the week he had."

    Johnson, the second-round pick from Cal-Santa Barbara acquired by the Pacers from Sacramento in a draft-night trade, had no problem creating shots but struggled mightily to knock then down. He shot 20 of 76 (.263) overall and was 4 of 19 (.211) from the 3-point line, averaging 12.4 points and 5.0 rebounds.

    "Sitting next to Donnie (Walsh) and Larry (Bird) and Kevin (Pritchard) during all the practices leading up to summer league, the son-of-a-gun didn't miss a shot in five practices," Vogel said. "Every mid-range jump shot, every open three went down. And it was the complete opposite in summer league.

    "As a result, when he started missing some shots he started forcing it a little bit, which all young players are going to do. We're not wavering in our confidence at all that he's going to be a heck of a player for us."

    Jeff Pendergraph had a hard fall in the first game that led to two developments: an injury that limited the veteran power forward's availability and the late addition of Julian Mavunga to the roster.

    The undrafted free agent rookie from Miami (Ohio) impressed the coaching staff with his strong, consistent low-post play. A product of nearby Brownsburg, Ind., Mavunga was a high school teammate of Gordon Hayward who did not commit to basketball full-time until his senior season.

    He averaged 6.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 19 minutes per game, hitting 50 percent of his shots and may well have earned an invitation to training camp in October.

    "He had a terrific week, really made the best of his opportunity," Vogel said. "A little bit undersized (6-8, 245) but he just went in and basically kicked everybody's butt that he played against which was fun to see and exciting to have as part of what we did in summer league.

    "We're looking forward to having him back and getting some more workouts with us and potentially having him in as a camp guy."

    There were fewer victories than hoped but more pleasant surprises than not, which qualifies the Pacers' summer league experience as a success.

    Dion Waiters looks awful out of shape and cant drive on Dleague scrubs. His defense is awful instead of working out by himself after getting a promise pretty clear he just sat on his *** eating donuts. Not that big of deal just SL and has tons of time to get in shape for the season but if he cant stay in shape for the most important time of his career(the draft) that doesn't sound promising on his work ethic.

    Watching him vs the Suns should be interesting if he cant drive on Kendall Marshall I will really start to

    I never liked his back round he was a big time whiner at Cuse. Threaten to transfer because his HOF coach wouldn't start him. I still dont get all the love he got predraft very good agent same agent of Kobe Bryant when he came out. Much more of a me guy than a we guy.
