  • LeBron James in NBA 2K19

The Cavs lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in a semifinal game, and Josh Hart was named the Summer League MVP.

With that in mind, the 33-year-old finally made his way out on Sunday afternoon to watch the Lakers' summer league team compete in a playoff game against the Detroit Pistons.

This summer was supposed to be our first look at top pick Donte DiVincenzo - but he missed the first three games with an injury and played sparingly in two others, scoring just one point.

Both rookies have performed nicely in their first dose of National Basketball Association action and have given the fans and coaching staff some great takeaways.

Former Kansas guard Svi Mykhailiuk of the Los Angeles Lakers was chosen to the all-NBA Summer League second team Tuesday in a vote of media members that covered the two-week event in Las Vegas.

The Cavs, who began life without four-time league MVP LeBron James for the second time, also got great performances from second-year players Cedi Osman (20.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 4.5 apg) and Ante Zizic (20.5, 12.5, 3.5). However, it has been Hart that has been the star of the summer.

The 6-foot-3 point guard earned first-team honors in the league after averaging 19.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 28.7 minutes as the Cavs went 5-2. In the semi-finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Hart dropped 37 points and nine rebounds to lead LA to a double-overtime victory.

The NBA Summer League is a nice teaser for basketball fans who are itching for the upcoming season and a ideal time for the incoming young talent to burst onto the scene.
