Memphis Claims Summer League Title, Takes Home Their Fourth MVP Award

The Memphis Grizzlies win the Summer League Finals, and surprisingly have four MVPs on their roster.

Led by first-round selection and Summer League MVP, Brandon Clarke, the Memphis Grizzlies have defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Summer League Finals 95-92. The 21st overall pick averaged a near double-double with 15 points and just under 10 rebounds per game in his six Summer League appearances.

Clarke slid a little in the draft this June, and 18 teams must feel pretty dumb now. He was the best player on a loaded Gonzaga team, but scouts felt that due to how undersized he was, his skill set would not translate to the next level. So far, they’re wrong.

Clarke has shot the ball very efficiently in each of his games, even showing off that he can knock down his outside jump shots.

Grizzlies’ fans already have high hopes for Clarke as he joins the young core in Memphis that features Jaren Jackson Jr. and Ja Morant. Not only will Clarke join these budding stars, but he will also team up with three other Summer League MVPs. Jonas Valanciunas (2013), Kyle Anderson (2015), and Tyus Jones (2018) have all had semi-successful NBA careers; however, Memphis will have higher expectations for the ex-Bulldog.

Lol Tyson literally lost every single time he ever fought an elite boxer, and a few times against non elite boxers. But he’s gonna destroy Ali? Not even close? Not a chance. This dude literally asked “who did Ali ever beat?” Lol who the hell did Tyson ever beat??? Tyson fights were wildly entertaining, but he’s super overrated.

Joe Frazier beat Ali and Tyson is the same prototype fighter with more power

people riding Ali act like he never got touched up, he never fought anyone with KO power like Mike.
