Summer League basketball exists as a self-contained bubble in the NBAverse. It's a space where we all get overly hyped about player highlights, only to get sorely disappointed months later, when we realise once again, that those performances don't translate onto the NBA floor. Having said that, it's an entertaining little reprieve from the NBA's free agency madness. It's a chance for us to watch potential NBA prospects perform. This applies especially to our Australians, many of whom are playing their hearts out in a chance to get noticed.
