Lakers 2017 NBA Summer League Champs

Lakers 2017 Summer League championship win should give Lakers fans hope for the Future!


Last night the Lakers had the fans in Las Vegas rocking! every time the Lakers made a shot there was a roar that went through the crowd. There is no doubt about it that the Laker fans are ready for basketball season to start, so that they can cheer on their team in action. In a close finals match-up through out the whole game the Lakers gave the fans something to cheer about shooting lights out from the field, and ultimately defeating the Portland Trail Blazers 110-98 in the summer league finals.

Last night started off great for the Lakers after hearing Lonzo Ball Lakers No. 2 pick and point guard was named MVP of the summer league. This was just the start of a good night for this young Lakers team. The Lakers last night couldn’t seem to miss shooting 61.5% from the field and 58.3% from three. Kyle Kuzma Lakers power forward had a great night recording a double-double scoring 30 points on 11-16 shooting, and also grabbing 10 rebounds. Kyle Kuzma was not the only one scoring the ball, he also had help from G-league MVP Vander Blue scoring 20 points and Matt Thomas who went a perfect 5-5 from three and finishing with 23 points. Even though this is just summer league this is a good start for Magic Johnson and the Lakers organization heading into next season.

With the addition of two solid players like Kentavious Caldwell-pope who averaged 13.8 ppg for the pistons last year, Brook Lopez a NBA all-star, and now a NBA summer league championship the Lakers seem to be moving in to right direction. Now are the Lakers a playoff team right now I do not think so. I think this year we’ll see excitement and growth from this young Lakers team, but if Magic can keep on making the right moves like he’s been doing so far I think their time is near.
