It’s been an interesting last few days for the Cleveland Cavaliers, to say the very least.
With nothing else going on, it’s been a productive, noteworthy first few days for Cleveland at the NBA Summer League, winning three pool play games ahead of a tournament-play format coming up at the NBA’s workouts in Las Vegas, Nev.
In most years, that would be what Cleveland fans would be gabbing about.
But this isn’t most years.
Friday, it was announced that LeBron James, the dominant player in the NBA, would be returning from a four-year stint in Miami to Cleveland, where he spent the first seven years of pro career.
Come this fall, he and former Los Alamos standout Alex Kirk could find themselves teammates in Cleveland.
Kirk, who graduated from Los Alamos High School in 2010 and played for the University of New Mexico until his graduation this past May, is on Cleveland’s Summer League roster. Kirk was offered a spot on the roster after he went undrafted in the June NBA draft.
While the NBA Summer League is rather informal, Kirk and other young players hoping to nab a roster spot would like to impress coaches and scouts during these games for a crack at playing pro ball full time.
