I watched pretty much all of Svi’s minutes and he is a much better player than you think. However, he did have a bad shooting game in the Finals. Some may say it was the fact that Portland had six or seven guys with at least one year of NBA experience. I think it had more to do with the Lakers playing their third consecutive game following the double OT game with Cleveland.

If you want to make the argument that his ball handling, passing, rebounding and defense don’t mean anything because it was Summer League, I certainly can’t argue otherwise.

Oh well, at least he’s a better shooter than Trae Young:)

At age 19, Svi shot .398 3P% compared to Young at .360 3P%
