Anyone following the Summer League?
Cleve 91 Golden State 66

Shannon Brown looked good, so did Daniel Gibson and what's up with Brandon Hunter?

Hunter has had a very good Summer Camp. For someone who has averaged less than 8 minutes a game for Milwaukee and Orlando? with only 3 pts per game, he is looking like a nice possible fit this year.

Did his play last year with an Italian team mature him that fast?

I wish Brian Windhurst would do an article on the Summer League team so we can see if this is a mirage or real developement.

I like Shannon Browns game.

I E-mailed Brian Windhorst an asked for a column about the Summer League team.

Not that he even read my note, but he did write a nice article.

Shannon Brown averages 14 points, displays poise and positive attitude during Vegas Summer League.

By Brian Windhorst

...Brown scored 17 points in the victory and finished the five games averaging 14 points on 50 percent shooting, 2.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists. Those stats look nice enough, but their value is somewhat superficial as well.

What lit up Cavs coach Mike Brown was watching his new guard's attitude, technique and poise.

Like how Shannon Brown knew how to attack pick-and-rolls in spells when he was at point guard, not a style he was used to at Michigan State. Or how he would pick things up quickly in practice. And how he wanted to win and delivered when games were on the line, as he did in leading a late comeback Friday...

...Free-agent forward Brandon Hunter, who starred at Ohio University and has played two years in the NBA, might have played his way into a training-camp invitation. He averaged 9.6 points and 9.2 rebounds and looked very strong around the basket...

Shannon Brown played really good, and Dan Gibson played solid. Shannon Brown is going to be a good player in this league. He will be the steal of the draft when it's all said and done, especially with playing along side someone like Lebron. It'll bring out the best in him. I'm excited for these 2 players.
