Pretty fun weekend! Caught some NBA Summer League action on Sat night. CJ McCollum looks promising for the BLAZERS. He's got a lot of skills, but wonder how he'll do in the real world when faced with the league's big guns like Kobe Bryant. Phoenix had my head spinning until I figured out there were actually two guys named Morris, the twins. Sorry the Blazers lost, but it was fun to watch.
Noting that Sunday was Bastille Day, had to put on the Rush song to go with the Mimosas. Won't be long before Rush comes back to the Northwest. PEEK AT THE WEEK:
