*The NBA’s Summer League basketball, by its nature, was tailor made for insane dunks. And this season did not disappoint.
As Yahoo Sports points out, the teams are “thrown together a week or so before it starts, having three or four practices before games start,” so summer league “tends to be a glorified pickup game. It’s wide open. That’s good for aggressive, shoot-first players who have the ball in their hands and it’s good for the very best athletes.”
NBA Summer League 2021 took place between Aug. 8 and 17 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. All 30 NBA teams played five games each during the season, culminating in a best-of-four playoff series between the top two teams. The Sacramento Kings became the first team to win multiple Summer League titles after topping the Boston Celtics 100-67 at Thomas & Mack Center on Aug. 17.
