Report from NBA Summer League

Here’s my report on Lonzo Ball after seeing him get a triple-double in person in a 94-83 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. His shot is really bad and they are going to have to reconstruct it to make him a shooter in the league. But he’s a really smart player.  He get’s it done on offense and defense, and in all statistical categories.  He’s a team player, and the comparisons to Jason Kidd are spot on. He’s going to be the next Jason Kidd and a good one. As long as he’s more of a distributor than a shooter. Even Jason Kidd made himself into a decent shooter and Ball is ahead of Kidd there, in my opinion.

Also, in the MavericksKings game before, Dennis Smith Jr. had a missed dunk that would have brought the house down, and still basically did.  Should be a stud for the Mavericks in his rookie year.
