The thing is, practice is one thing, and game situations are another. You can work hard on drills, fitness, weight training, short scrimmages, etc.. all you want, all NBA players do that. It's not easy to take a whole summer off and then just come back and jump into things again, their NBA players so they get paid great money to work hard. I would've liked to see him in summer league to see him getting in some game action. It's only a week right? So there would be plenty of time to get back in the gym and train.
