NBA Summer League All-Stars

Hot off the presses, I've just been handed the 2007 NBA Summer League presented by adidas All-Stars. 15 players were chosen for the first team, including Sonics rookie Kevin Durant.

Beyond the Sonics, Seattle-area talent dominated the league. Nate Robinson (Rainier Beach, UW) was chosen the Most Outstanding Player of the NBA Summer League, while Aaron Brooks (Franklin) was chosen as the T-Mobile Rookie of the Month. In addition, Spencer Hawes (Seattle Prep, UW) and Rodney Stuckey (Kentwood, Eastern Washington) were also named to the All-Star team. That's more than one-quarter of the group from the greater Seattle area.

Robinson's Knicks and the Dallas Mavericks were the only two teams to go 5-0 in Vegas. He averaged 18.8 points and 6.0 assists per game. Brooks has averaged 22.2 ppg for the 3-1 Rockets, who are in action right now on the other court.

Durant entered today fourth in the NBA Summer League in scoring at 22.7 ppg.
