I’ve always casually watched the NBA Summer League. In a time where the focus is almost entirely on baseball, watching a couple of basketball games per day is a good way to have a change of pace and scout some young talent. But after being courtside in Las Vegas for five days, my appreciation for the Summer League has grown immensely.
Scott Cacciola (@ScottCacciola) of the New York Times sat down with me at the NBA's Las Vegas Summer League to check in on the Knicks mid-offseason, break down the re-signing of Carmelo Anthony, and project how the team will look come the regular season.
It started in 2010. That summer the NBA changed drastically and still has not been the same since. It was the summer where players began to take power into their own hands, abandoning the teams that drafted them and teaming up with other stars to win championships.
