Let me try to explain to you the difference;
In summer league you have players who neither know the offense or defense the team is running, the summer league is the beginning of their learning process. There are a ton of guys who's main goal is to get exercise, get in shape for the upcoming season and not get hurt, especially top draft picks who are guaranteed a spot. If these guys don't know the system they are running it becomes as significant as YOU hitting baskets in your driveway by yourself, it is NOT real basketball but merely exercise. In summer league, many guys are working on things that they don't do well, not things that they would be doing if it was a real game, so guys who are slashers will maybe take a bunch of 3's instead of driving or vice versa.
Just know this Tam, there is not a single insider who would tell you that Summer league is in the remote class of D-League basketball
Thanks for the input, but pls don't ignore my point that I CROSS REFERENCED the SPL prospects' stats FROM their D-League averages, hence, YES, I understand the SPL has a smaller sample and but I just don't think SPL is totally insignificant. Scouts and Head coaches are there and I don't think they were there to hold hands and sing kumbaya, infact the Lakers just signed a player who has played ZERO seconds in the D-League and just played a few games in the SPL.
