Been reading lots of hype about the impressive performances of Russell Westbrook, Mario Chalmers and Brook Lopez in the Summer League. I understand that hype sells tickets and that the league needs new stars but do any of THESE names ring a bell?
Sarunas Jasikevicius? Dejuan Wagner? Von Wafer? Marco Belinelli?
All of these cats looked like All Stars in offseasons past against weak competition (and with unlimited fouling). Then the real season comes around and they're lucky to even make rosters. Summer League ain't shit. Never has been.
Sarus Jasikevicius- uh, wtf?
