    I dont see a thread for this yet... so figured i'd get it going!
    August 8-17 here is glorious Las Vegas (where i live - lol!)
    Really looking forward to this year! We should have some noteworthy rookies to watch!

    I'll def be attending at least a couple days when the Rox are in play!

    NEW YORK – The NBA today announced the competition structure for the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2021, which will take place Aug. 8-17 at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

    The 16th annual MGM Resorts NBA Summer League will feature all 30 NBA teams playing five games apiece during the 10-day, 75-game event. After every team plays four games, the two teams with the best records from the first four games will meet in the Championship Game on Aug. 17.

    Thomas & Mack Center and COX Pavilion will host either seven or eight games per day during the 10-day competition.

    Every year summer league gets bigger and bigger - and crazier and crazier... lol!

    When i started attending (before the Rox started participating) it was like $15 or $20... they were only using the small gym... everybody sat together in the bleachers - fans, players, coaches, etc....

    tons of great auto getting back then... i got CP3 as a rookie... shook hands and got an auto from Morey there... spoke to JVG when we trying to reacquire Mike James - lol.... really fun times...

    Now its def more of a money grab and the interaction is lost... but still great to have some live NBA action here in Vegas!

    Unless we pick Mobley, then I give him permission to block every dunk attempt by Green.

    Texans have a better chance winning the AFC south than Mobley being drafted by rockets lol.

    Damn that’s dope that’s all top 5 picks, Orlando will have #8 too

    The only thing that could make it suck is if all the top draft picks skip it

    I'm assuming KPJ is beyond summer league now because it would be kinda sweet seeing Green and KPJ together in the summer league.

    Lebron's debut in the SL 14/7/6
    Kobe: 25 points
    Melo 12
    Durant - apparently terrible cant find data]
    Harden same (missed wide open three to tie game vs Hansborough)


    Looking forward to JG's debut. I'm predicting a solid 15 pts 4 rebounds and 7 assists

    I can’t remember if clutch makes a thread for the SL but the schedule was just released. I have a feeling we’re going to wish it was longer.
