Hart, who exploded for 37 points against Cleveland and averaged 22.4 PPG while leading LA to a 6-1 Summer League record, wasn’t in the mood to discuss his MVP after the blowout loss, even though Lakers president Magic Johnson suggested the second-year guard could compete for a starting spot in the fall. “It was cool,” Hart said of winning tournament MVP. “I’ll talk more about that later down the line. We came in and missed shots and we fell in the hole and we couldn’t find a rhythm. After this horrible game today, I can’t wait to get back to training camp and wash this taste out of my mouth. That time can’t come soon enough.”
Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka identified Hart, who hit 6 of 15 3-pointers in the win over Cleveland, as one of the reasons why the Lakers did not pursue signing a shooting specialist in free agency. “I think I can knock down shots,” said Hart, who shot 39.6 percent from behind the arc during his rookie season. “And when those guys find me when I am open, I know we have unselfish guys, my job is to knock them down.”
