    I feel bad for asking, and maybe it’s a huge brain fog for me, but who is Cal sitting next to?

    Never mind, thought it was Wall, but didn’t realize he had gotten so inked up

      That’s crazy; these guys are going to regret this when they turn 60 years old.

    Hilarious that there is a post about NBA summer league play. Will any of the guys in this league contribute to the UK squad next season?

      Of course they will; I heard Anthony Davis and John Wall are coming back, too.
