Josh Selby Earns Co-MVP Honors in Las Vegas Summer League

Congratulations to Josh Selby who picked up a much deserved co-MVP award for his play in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Selby, who is entering his second year in the NBA, played some amazing basketball, giving us Grizzlies fans reason to believe that maybe -- just maybe -- we might have an outside shooting threat on our hands. Considering, of course, Selby hit over 70 percent of his 3-point attempts (24-for-34) and made at least 5 threes in each of the four games he played. Well. Done. Sir.

Now, I'm not going to try and sell you on Selby as being a 2-plus per game 3-point shooting threat over an 82-game span, but he can certainly help provide a nice outside threat for the worst 3-point shooting team in the NBA - Us!!

He shares the honor with Blazers rookie Damian Lillard who in his own right deserved recognition for his play, averaging 26.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 5.6 assists in four games. Now, let's not get too wrapped up in arguing whether or not Selby deserved to be the singular MVP, considering he led the SL in scoring at 27.5 points per game, because, really, who cares. All that matters is that he developed his game and now looks like he's going to play an important role for us this season. That's what matters most. Because when he's playing meaningful basketball in late-April you're not even going to remember that he had to share MVP honors with Lillard. It won't even matter.

What matters is that he played some great basketball and ultimately made us forget about O.J. Mayo -- if only for a week!
