So even though the marquee NBA summer event, the Vegas Summer League, concluded last night, I had to first highlight this highlight reel of Zach LaVine tearing up his hometown’s pro-am over the weekend. To the tune of 49 points (I know, the defense doesn’t look that willing to step up here) but moreso than that: a ridiculous game-winning 3 at the buzzer. Couldn’t script in better as LaVine walks off with peak swag. And speaking of Summer League, the kid impressed there too. I expect a big sophomore season for him (and a repeat dunk title) up in Minny this year.
But as I alluded to above, the Spurs stay winning this summer as they won the Summer League Championship last night. The week’s MVP was Kyle Anderson as high-flyer Jonathan Simmons won the game MVP and the Spurs’ win overall was a statement for Becky Hammon — the first NBA head coach at any level. Congrats to them. I’ve also watched this Kyle Anderson behind the back pass like 83x already today.
