There are several takeaways from the 2017 NBA Summer League and after watching weeks of these young players battle it out, it really feels like this Draft class produced a bevy of future All-Stars.
First, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Lakers and Lonzo Ball first.

The Lakers not only won the Summer League Championship by beating the Trail Blazers 110-98 in Las Vegas.
And while all eyes were focused on Ball, another rookie was secretly stealing the show.

Kyle Kuzma, who was originally drafted by the Brooklyn Nets a month ago came to Los Angeles as part of the trade that sent De’Andre Russell to the east coast.
In the championship game, the Utah product scored 30 points and 10 rebounds and took home the game’s MVP award.
The king of the summer and the league’s Most Valuable Player, Lonzo Ball stayed focus through outside distractions to really prove that he is the real deal.
