Selby stars Saturday at NBA summer league


— Former Kansas basketball player Josh Selby scored a game-high 20 points on 7-for-11 shooting, leading the Memphis Grizzlies’ summer league team to a 93-77 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday.

Selby was 5-for-7 from three-point range and added a steal and rebound to go with two turnovers in 25 minutes.

In his second summer league game, Thomas Robinson scored 14 points on 3-for-13 shooting with 12 rebounds in the Sacramento Kings’ 84-72 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Robinson made eight of 13 free throws with four assists, three turnovers and one steal in 28 minutes.

Teammate Darnell Jackson posted five points on 2-for-4 shooting with four rebounds, a block and a turnover in 14 minutes in the same contest.

Marcus Morris had an eventful game for Houston, as he received stitches above his right eye after taking a hard foul in the Rockets’ 76-70 loss to the Washington Wizards.

Morris, who didn’t return to the game after suffering the injury in the first half, finished with seven points (3-for-5 shooting), three rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 16 minutes. He also picked up a technical foul after getting in a shoving match with the Wizards’ Chris Singleton.

Josh selby.... biggest dissapointment in ku basketball history.

I wouldn't put him there, but I have no interest in what he's doing in the NBA. He's not really a "Jayhawk" in the true sense. Yes, officially, he was here, but we were just a stepping stone for him.

Just expressing a personal opinion bro. Nice talk.

Good point, VaJay.

You have an opinion to express, not facts to consider.

Don't let facts get in your way. Facts are annoying.

Agreed Ralster - Josh will always be a Jayhawk in my book.

If you love him so much why dont you marry him

Witty retort. By the way, I am being sarcastic.

"Every arena he is introduced now as "from the Univ. of KS...": for a former #1PG to fail, would be a black mark on Self& KU"

A bit overly dramatic don't you think?

It wasn't a big deal. They played a 40 minutes of hell style game and the Kings didn't have any ball-handlers on the court. Robinson was basically playing the 3 spot and he was expected to help with bringing the ball up the court. When he takes the court with the starting line-up he'll be playing the 4 spot and won't really have any ball-handling responsibilities unless he decides to make a quick move to the hoop from the perimeter. It's just one of those weird line-ups that happens in the summer league games that won't happen during the season.

They had TRob bring the ball up the court. They were playing a 2-1-2 zone press and he was rushing it. Made some nice plays passing. He was pissed after the game he gave 1 word answers and was less than thrilled with his game.
