Not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
Nineteen different NBA teams, and one group of the D-League's best, were forced to accept this is more than just a clever marketing catchphrase after their summer league seasons came to a close in the past few days.
Thanks to the newly adopted tournament format, just two teams were left from the 22-team field that kicked off Sin City's NBA Summer League play on July 12. A pair of Pacific Division rivals, the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns, squared off in Monday's winner-take-all championship game.
Before the Warriors and Suns sent us all into basketball's shrinking season of slumber, the hoops world left us with a number of notable news nuggets to digest.
A slimmed-down Draymond Green doesn't need a position designation to make an impact. The Suns' sibling rivalry will bring nothing but good feelings for next season. James Ennis might be more than a seat-filler for the two-time defending champion Miami Heat.
Savor these storylines from the final weekend of Summer League play. It will be a while before we see any of these faces again.
