NBA Summer League

So, I'm in Vegas and the NBA Summer League is taking place at the Thomas & Mack. Meanwhile, numerous young men with flat-brimmed caps and new money are less efficiently developing skills at the craps and blackjack tables. If you enjoy the NBA, it's a good trip. For $22, you can watch up to four games each day (and switch between gyms) while sitting in the 3rd-4th row. Kids are playing hard, as most are either trying to jusify the lottery pick or trying to prove themselves worthy of a training camp invitation. The intensity is much more in line with the college level. There are a coupe of Red Raiders playing: Andre Emmett and Alan Voskuil. Emmett is playing on the D-League all-star team and is second in team scoring (didn't see them play). Voskuil is playing with the Grizzles (who I watched for a half), and hasn't logged any playing time. That's not very encouraging in a league built around evaluation and development. He didn't seem to have any chemistry with his teammates, so he may be a recent addition. All that said, if you find yourself looking for an air-conditioned diversion from The Strip during the NBA Summer League, I would give three reds to a taxi and head over to the T&M.
