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.

Next Starts Now: SuiteWorld17 Executive Keynote feat. Jim McGeever

Here’s the NetSuite SuiteWorld17 Opening Keynote with Jim McGeever. It also features some insights into the acquisition and plan for NetSuite moving forward from Oracle CEO Mark Hurd. As a Certified NetSuite ERP Consultant, I’m excited about continued growth of NetSuite, and what Oracle can provide in fostering that growth. Personally, as in line with everything you see below, I consider it an exciting time to be a part of NetSuite as an employee, partner or customer.

Although, I’ll be honest. I think NetSuite/Oracle really missed a great opportunity to have one of their own PS Consultants rap in the opening.
