Two weeks ago, a lot of haters came out and even calling Pat Riley to step down because they dont like the pick.
Now what!?! ha ha ha
Summer League tends to do that. Which is why I like to remind everyone every year that Summer League is not NBA basketball.
We all know to take Summer League for what it is. Tim Duncan looked horrible in SL and finished fifth in MVP voting his rookie year. Trey Young also looked like trash last year.
But you can't pretend there isn't some correlation between rookie SL performance and future success, even if it's minor.
Gilgeous Alexander's play last year made me think he might have what it took to be a future star, and right now he looks to have the brightest future of the guys outside the top 5-6.
Basically, if Tyler was looking terrible, I'd be a little concerned, but I wouldn't be trashing him.
But when your 19 year old rookie is averaging 20, 3.5, 3.5, and 2 through the first 3 games, it is encouraging.
He's shooting ... 36.7% FG ... 36.7 3FG% ... 100% FT ... if the stats found online can be believed.
Lets tap the brakes. All summer league is telling me is that we're asking Herro to take a lot of shots.
