Lonzo Ball wins summer league MVP

After creating so much hype leading into the NBA 2017 draft and offseason UCLA star point guard has not disappointed after a stellar performance in this years summer league. Lonzo Ball drafted second overall by the Los Angeles Lakers had a rough first game but had a great summer league overall, he showcased his court vision and his impressive passing skills with nifty passes and accurate full court passes.

Everyone from his teammates, including Magic and Brandon Ingram, to NBA analysts, have said that Lonzo Ball makes the game easier for everyone on the court with his passing ability. Ball acquired a triple double 3 times and scoring 36 points at one point, he did not play in the championship game but his performance was enough to warrant him as summer league Most Valuable Player. He averaged 16.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1 block and 9.3 assists per game.

Kyle Kuzma shines in summer league

Everyone thought the Lakers summer league team was gonna be a one man show with Lonzo Ball but the 27th pick in this years NBA draft stepped up and showed that he was, in fact, a big steal in this years NBA draft.

Kyle Kuzma along with Lonzo Ball led the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason to a summer league championship, and Kuzma was awarded summer league finals MVP with his scoring prowess and on point three points shooting.

Kuzma averaged 21.9 points, 2.7 assists, and 1.4 blocks while shooting 51.4% from the field, 48% from beyond the arc and 75% from the free throw line.

He has a long way to go but he certainly showed how good he is on the offensive end. As he was awarded the MVP trophy Magic was caught being super happy and excited for the young cadets of the Lakers.

Manu Ginobili to play one more year

Former sixth man of the year, FIBA world cup champion and four-time NBA champion Manu Ginobili is set to return for another year in the NBA.

the 15-year veteran and two-time NBA All-Star has contemplated for a long time now on retirement, with Duncan already retired and Parker injured it seemed likely that last year was his last, but Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Ginobili and the San Antonio Spurs are finalizing a one year deal that will bring back the Argentinian to one more season in the NBA this offseason. He is not the same player as he used to be but Ginobili is still a pretty solid role player off the bench despite his old age.
