Video: Top 10 dunks from Las Vegas Summer League
Golden State’s Kent Bazemore, the most entertaining player at the Las Vegas Summer League, fittingly had the best dunk of the competition, according to NBA.com.
Bazemore’s slam over Dallas’ Jackie Carmichael leads the site’s list of the top 10 dunks from the 11-day tournament, which concluded on Monday when the Warriors defeated the Suns in the championship game.
Bazemore, who went undrafted from Old Dominion and eventually caught on with the Warriors last year, averaged 18.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.1 rebounds in Golden State’s 7-0 run in Las Vegas.
“That’s the Kent we’ve been coaching,” Warriors coach Mark Jackson said, making it clear that he wasn’t surprised by Bazemore’s strong week. “He’s a guy that came into this league not sure if he could play the point guard position. He’s worked his tail off every single day. He’s a big-time defender, can score the basketball, he’s a much-improved shooter. He separated himself in this summer league.”
Charlotte’s Jeff Taylor and Sacramento’s Ben McLemore were among the other players on NBA.com’s countdown.
And in case you missed it, here’s a sampling of some of the best dunks at the Orlando Summer League from early July:
