While preseason basketball can only be so interesting, most of the basketball world is curious to see what the New York Knicks new offense will look like under Phil Jackson and head coach Derek Fisher’s triangle system. What was the answer we got on Monday? Not very good so far.

When I Get My Card Back Activated, I’m Back to Vegas

Shielding fans from scorching triple-digit Las Vegas temperatures, Thomas & Mack Center also provides sanctuary from the turbulence of NBA free agency. It’s an imperfect abode for basketball, but an abode nonetheless —the game breathes and entertains thousands for a few weeks in the heart of the summer. Draft prospects, some young and some old, provide optimism for franchises in need. Fringe roster players re-display skills that once made them coveted. Coaches are given the opportunity to mesh with team members.

I’ve always casually watched the NBA Summer League. In a time where the focus is almost entirely on baseball, watching a couple of basketball games per day is a good way to have a change of pace and scout some young talent. But after being courtside in Las Vegas for five days, my appreciation for the Summer League has grown immensely.

Austin will be at the NBA's Summer League in as Vegas until the 16th of July as an Intern with NBA TV. “It’s been fun," Austin told WFUV, in between signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. "I’m doing a lot of different things. I've been interviewing, been working with Bleacher Report a little bit. I'm really just getting to know TV broadcasting.”

I remember watching Matthew Dellavedova play for St. Mary’s in the NCAA Tournament. He didn’t seem extremely quick or athletic then, and still doesn’t now. That said, Dellavedova knows how to play point guard better than anyone I’ve seen at the Summer League.

With countless favorable impressions made in the first three days the NBA's Summer League in Las Vegas, Doug McDermott's strong start can get lost in the fold.

Through two games in Vegas, McDermott is shooting a cool 50% from three, 45% from the field, and has dropped 41 points. The folks inside the COX Pavilion were treated to a show Sunday night, as 31 of those points came during an exquisite 7/12 (5/9 3 PT) shooting performance.
