I've never seen a summer league team play this cohesively.
Not seeing much of the usual hero ball that typically plagues this format (seeing some of it from Memphis tonight). Moving the ball, moving their bodies. Great stuff. It helps that two of the primary ball handlers on this roster are legit, drafted guards rather than the guys who are trying to force their way onto a roster somewhere.

Great lefty delivery off the bounce and on the money by Waters. He is pretty clearly a pro point guard to me.

Wonder if we are going to throw an early tournament game like last year so the team can go home early or if we’ll try to win it all.

These are not G League easy threes. I don’t see why Arson can’t also torch the show.

This Dokich guy could be talked into killing himself by tweets. Guy has a problem.

I know some of you want to put #52 in the rafters at the Garden, but I need to remind you this is Summer League. He would have a very difficult time getting his shot up versus Kawhi Leonard.

who am I?

Grant's college turnaround jumper won't work as well against professional players. He doesn't get enough elevation.

I hope Romeo is hungry as hell watching these guys showing like this. Fair or not, he's going to show up to camp and preseason with more to prove as the mystery man drafted higher than his new teammates who are dominating here.

Somebody looking to start trouble while the rest of us are enjoying a Summer League game? What is it with you and your spiking the football/baiting others? Why bother?

The Celts are dominating the summer league. They've already won games by 17, 13 and 14 points, and now are up 17!

for the 100th time...this is more fun than last season already
I've already watched about an hour and a half of summer league ball, which is about one hour and 29 minutes more than I expected.

So much more fun that all of last year. I love like half of these guys, which is also shocking to me.
Waters is quick and smart with great vision.
Tennessee Williams is also smart, and so strong. He will eventually be a good NBA player.
Edwards is everything I was hoping for when I wanted us to draft him at #22 or wherever, but instead we get him in the second round, even better.
Tacko is just fun.
Strus is a player, he is the poor man's version of Tyler Herro. Comparing him to Nader is just weird and wrong, he is a pure gunner who can fill it up, Nader was just some random guy.
I love that Onuaku shoots underhand free throws. That alone proves he is smarter than most big men.

Any of these guys on the roster would be way more fun to root for than most of the cruds who left (except Al and Baynes, I will miss them.)

It’s fair. All three of those guys were very good and highly decorated college players who led good teams and would’ve been drafted much higher if they were 3 inches taller.

I feel like this team could beat Charlotte and OKC minus Paul, at the very least.
