    In one of the "Who gives a crap" games of the night, the Blazers take on the OKC Thunder. The game matters not per Casey Holdahl:



    With it not mattering and Anfernee Simons possibly out with a Grade 1 ankle sprain suffered in the closing minute of the Jazz game, this could get even more ugly in terms of 'watchability'.

    This would have been the perfect game for @THE HCP to make the game thread.

    I certainly don't care. I was most interested in watching Simons and Skal.

    What annoys me is I wouldn't be surprised if I still turn this on tonight...

    Summer league is great for basketball junkies.

    With Simons possibly being out, it might offer a larger opportunity to see what Little can do.

    This could be a fun game. I would run 1 play after another for the only 3 players that matter.

    Hoard, Daum and Little should get a heavy load and a real chance to shine. Sometimes good players don't get drafted they get developed.

    Throw in 40 plus shots from Trent and we could have a ballgame.

    Nobody but his family and the people on this board cares about Daum. He won't get any more run tonight than he has in the first 3 games.

    Anfernee is going to hit a 37ft Buzzer Beater and waves goodbye to the OKC Team

    I thought HCP would be making the game threads.

    Yes. I love watching the team, but no one should care about winning

    Agreed, I can't help it. I am such a sucker for an underdog success story.

    Me too. I just wanted to see if his Jackrabbit success might translate. Impossible to know if he never sees the floor.

    There’s probably a reason for that too. I don’t think they’d be sitting him if he were playing well in practices.

    I rather see @THE HCP play PG while Simons recovers.

    Today will be my last day down here, so I will be KINDA' watching. Working the Utah vs Houston game during this one.
    As far as letting me make the thread, I agree, I should have. Sly probably doesn't want me mentioning this, and there will be an officially statement this fall, but I will be taking over Official Thread making responsibilities for the up coming season, albeit on a trial basis.
    S2 is paying for me to take some online graphics courses. Things are going well and I'm excited for you to see my work.

    It seems that Little can do very little.

    Good one.
