Josh Selby, Damian Lillard Named Co-MVPs of the Summer League

A pair of guards were named co-MVPs of the Summer League, as the honor went to Memphis’ Josh Selby and Blazers’ rookie Damian Lillard. Per NBA.com: “Selby, the Grizzlies’ second-year guard out of Kansas, led all players in scoring at 27.5 points per game as Memphis went 2-2 entering its final game Sunday. Selby shot 59.3 percent from the floor — including 70.6 percent on 3-pointers. Selby made at least five 3-pointers in each game, talling 24 in the four games (24-for-34). Selby was also active defensively, averaging 2.5 steals. Lillard, whom the Blazers took sixth overall in the 2012 Draft, averaged 26.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 5.6 assists in four games. Lillard shots 43.8 percent from the floor, highlighted by a 31-point, seven-assist performance in Thursday’s 84-78 win over Atlanta. Lillard finished second in scoring (first among rookies) and sixth in assists (third among rookies).”

    Always got to be weary about judging cast off their summer league performance but Lillard looks like a legit ROY candidate.
    The person that impressed me the most was MKG though.

    I was quite impressed with Henson.
    His offensive game seems to be better than expected.
    Glad to see Selby do well, hope he has a better (more minutes) 2nd year.

    As usual Selby went nuts during the summer league, click my name for his best shot. Hopefully this will get him more mpg.

    With Selby, Bayless and Ellington, the Grizzlies should be straight as far as bench shooting and scoring. Good offseason.

    Lillard looks really good. And he is likely going to be the starting PG next season. It’s between him, Flynn, and Nolan Smith. — Nolan Smith being the second best PG on the team (imo) – and maybe the best at the start of the season. he’s better than people give him credit for.
