Game Thread: Summer Pellies vs. D-League All-Stars

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Spor

Summer League is finally tipping off! This is one game that absolutely everybody should be able to watch - just go to the NBA's site, click on "Watch with Summer League Live", click on "Free Trial", sign up as a new account, and you can watch! You don't even have to put in your credit card information or anything. It's pretty sweet.

The starting five for New Orleans:

Russ Smith - PG

James Southerland - SG

Josh Carter - SF

Josh Howard - PF(ish)

Jeff Withey - C

Last year, the D-League All-Stars did really well - they very well may be a formidable team again this year. Let's see how Withey does with his new bulk - will he be able to impose his will defensively? Will he be able to play offensively more than 5 feet from the basket? And Russ Smith is the other person to watch - can he distribute? Will he be as good on offense as advertised?

Let's go Summer Pellies!
