Summer League Demographics

I think one of the true identifying characteristics of a Blazer fanatic is an unholy fascination with the summer league. Count me in, because I'm sitting here trying to uncover all the summer league data I can find.

Saw something I thought was interesting and wanted to question the Bedge inteligentsia about it.

Look at the age of the "rookies" on the summer league roster:

  • Morris Finley, 26
  • Eddy Fobbs, 27
  • David Lucas, 26
  • Brandon Robinson, 27
  • Joe Stefansson, 26 (from Iceland)

There are some other older guys as well but they're about 3yrs into their "career." I thought it was interesting that there are these guys in their mid-late twenties "starting" on their NBA career.

Anybody have any insight on what appears to me to be the fringe group of NBA players? How do they get on a summer league roster? What hopes do they have of "making it"? Etc.?

As a middle-aged guy trying like hell to keep up with local gym rates and savor the last few years of basketbal playing prowess I've got, I'm going to find myself cheering for these guys in the summer league.
