Are you already tired of the offseason, or left unsatisfied by free agency stories unless they’re told with emojis? Desperate for real basketball, played by (sort of, mostly) NBA players? Then NBA Summer League is for you! Just watch Jerian Grant’s younger brother Jerami, fresh off his first year in the league with the Philadelphia Sixers, completely ruin undrafted free agent Brock Motum’s life:
Sure, summer league has all the talent of the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament with none of the drama, but it’s real basketball, dammit! And it’s on NBATV in this dark period when even all the good free agency stories look dried up (though we’re keeping an eye on the Enes Kanter situation, that doesn’t quite move the needle for us). So, enjoy moments like this because it’s all we’ve got in these dark times.
