Kent Bazemore did everything he set out to do during NBA Summer League. He showed strides in his offensive game and improved his grasp of team defense concepts. He all but locked up a roster spot on Golden State, emerging as a dominant player in Las Vegas. He led the Warriors' summer league squad to the inauguaral championship, averaging 18.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 30 minutes. Ian Clark, who dropped 33 on Phoenix on Monday, won the championship game MVP. And Toronto's Jonas Valanciunas won MVP of the Summer League. But Bazemore leaves Las Vegas with the respect he no doubt earned. Now, he said, it's time to get back to work.
