The NBA Summer League 2022 schedule starts today, and your Portland Trail Blazers are part of the opening night festivities! The Blazers will take on the Detroit Pistons in a nightcap affair, starting at 9:00 PM, Pacific. Watching 2022 NBA Draft pick Shaedon Sharpe take the floor for the very first time will be the main attraction, but Portland also fields a power-packed team capable of dazzling at any given moment. You won’t want to miss the next two weeks in Vegas!
This will serve as your open thread for conversation today as we ramp up to the event. Feel free to anticipate before the game starts and discuss once proceedings are underway. Marlow Ferguson (and likely site veteran Timmay) will have recaps for each game this summer, and we’ll also have plenty of analysis about Sharpe and all his teammates.
