JB: I belong in this league. I’m here for a reason. I mean, I have to be semi-decent at this game. I may not be good, but I’m not bad. That’s how you have to look at it. Me: They drafted you. JB: Exactly. And they picked his ass, what, 11th. Traded for him. I was picked 30th. I was like an afterthought — you know what, 30th pick, I guess we’ll take that kid from Tomball. I’m glad they decided to take that kid from Tomball, to tell you the truth.
Spurs reserve Kyle Anderson has been named MVP of the 2015 NBA Summer League after averaging 22 points over six games in Las Vegas, and 19.3 in nine games overall. Following his lead, the Spurs are 5-1 in Las Vegas and will play Phoenix on Monday for the championship. The Spurs previously went 1-2 in the Utah Summer League. Anderson, who is also averaging 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals in Las Vegas, was also named first-team All Summer League, joining Seth Curry of New Orleans, Chicago’s Doug McDermott, Norman Powell of Toronto and Phoenix’s T.J. Warren.
Bulls rookie forward Doug McDermott was in the locker room before a game last month when he was told about a rumor that his father, Greg, had called the front office to complain about his son’s lack of playing time and about the role coach Tom Thibodeau played in that. ‘‘Trust me, I heard it,’’ McDermott said, acknowledging it was bothersome. ‘‘I actually talked to my dad right after someone brought that to my attention in the locker room. I called him up and was just kind of laughing, almost. He was like, ‘What are you laughing about?’ I said, ‘You hear this rumor going out that you called the front office and stuff?’ He started laughing.’’
‘‘My dad would never do that,’’ McDermott said. ‘‘He’s a coach, and he has to deal with parents all the time, calling him up all the time. Boosters [and] parents calling all the time about playing time, everything. He would never do that. He has too much respect for the coaches here, [general manager] Gar [Forman] and Pax [vice president of basketball operations John Paxson], all those guys. He would never do that.’’
