Why Am I So Jacked Up About the NBA Summer League?

This is the question I keep asking myself. I know that as a W's fan, the bulk of the excitement around the  year centers around the lottery selection, the draft, opening day, and Vegas Summer League...mostly because these are when the W's show the most promise and they are all PRIOR to the season starting. 

I know that's a bit harsh but harsh is what we Warriors fans know. While Summer League is usually pretty exciting, I am especially excited about this one. Why is that? Well for starters, we are fielding a team that is perhaps among the best in the field - that's rare. And, we get to see on display probably the only two "untouchables" on the entire W's roster... Stephen Curry and Anthony Randolph; Curry for the first time since being named the next Steve Nash by Nellie (supposedly). 

With the W's very quiet in free agency so far, it is much easier to look toward the future than the present. But AR and SC are pretty darn exciting. Match them with the NBA's leading 3-point shooter in Anthony Morrow along with the previously coveted PG Acie Law, and this team has the makings of an intriguing group. When you add to that some local stars like Stanford's Lawrence Hill and Cal's Jamal Sampson, we've got the makings of some fun local summer sports. 

Can't wait to see how future core of the Warriors in Randolph-Curry and hope that this is not the high point of the W's season...
