It’s been a good first three games for the Toronto Raptors at Las Vegas Summer League. They’re undefeated, they earned the No. 1 seed in the championship portion of the tournament for a second year in a row, and the defense has been astonishingly smothering.
This was somewhat expected, or at least hoped for. With at least five players tabbed for the NBA this season, the Raptors have more talent than most teams here, and they have a fair amount of Summer League experience. Norman Powell was First-Team All-Tournament last year and looks like he has little business playing here any longer. Bruno Caboclo is in his third Summer League. Even guys like Drew Crawford and E.J. Singler bring some nice experience to the bench.
Still, whatever the expectation, this has been a lot of fun. With a second consecutive off-day ahead of the knockout stage – the Raptors are practicing at a Las Vegas high school – we thought we’d ask who’s impressing you most (shout out to Shania Twain). These polls are meant to be relative to expectations, not just who the best player’s been (that one would be fairly obvious).
