The Las Vegas Summer League is a beautiful haven where hyped rookies and forgotten veterans ply their trade as they either confirm our suspicions or surprise us with unknown skill. They can fascinate us mercilessly with their huge games against no defense, or frustrate endlessly with their untapped potential.

The game against the Lakers is probably going to be atrocious because they don't have any fun young players to watch. But the two games against Memphis and New Orleans should provide fun atmospheres with great young players abounding.

Then on Wednesday the playoffs begin. Each team is guaranteed five games, even if they lose in the first round. I'll at least be out there for the playoff portion of the event, and Conrad may be out there earlier in the event so we should have excellent coverage.

Among the Cavaliers in attendance should be whomever the number one selection is, another rookie whenever the Cavaliers decide to pick after their various wheelings and dealings are done, Dion Waiters, Tyler Zeller, Kevin Jones, Michael Eric and a various selection of other rookies and veterans that the Cavs think may be able to make their roster. It's always fun to see who steps up and impresses, so we'll see what happens from July 12-22.

All of the games will be televised on NBATV
