Today’s Topic: Summer League Superstars

The Summer League season is one of the most fun times of the NBA year, with every player on the floor having something to prove. After events in Orlando and Salt Lake City, the attention turns to Las Vegas where 23 of the 30 teams participate in 10 days of basketball, culminating in a tournament that was won by the Sacramento Kings last season. Coverage of the 2015 NBA Summer League tournament continues on NBA TV through July 20.

This Throwback Thursday we look back at the best players to ever play in the Summer League.
