Tobias Harris And John Henson Shined, But Did Bucks Summer League Make Us All Dumber?

Top prospects John Henson and Tobias Harris turned some heads and represented the Milwaukee Bucks well during 2012 Las Vegas Summer League action, and both players earned All-Star recognition for their efforts, but how much stock should fans put into exhibition games littered with fringe NBA players, unrealistic matchups and odd usage tendencies? Even if you've been burned in the past and have become a Summer League agnostic over the years, it's still safe to say that great production and is always better to see than poor performance during the games in July.

Dan Sinclair did an excellent job summarizing the top storylines from Vegas earlier this week, so before I get to the contents of the latest podcast let's revisit the five conclusions Dan managed to develop: (1) Tobias Harris is ready for a larger role, (2) John Henson's offensive game might be more developed than we thought, (3) the young guys have skills, but playmaking probably isn't one of them, (4) Larry Sanders should be feeling some fire under his feet, but he's not obsolete just yet and (5) Doron Lamb can score even when he's not making his threes.

Frank and I decided to do a podcast recap of Summer League as well. John Hollinger of ESPN has a theory that watching Summer League can easily make all of us dumber, so we spent most of our time reigning in wild expectations and putting things into the proper perspective heading into the 2012-13 NBA season.
