If a player does good in summer league can he make the season roster? I would like to see LeBron's friends from Akron play good.

LeBron's two HS teammates who recently graduated from the University of Akron (my college) are on the team.

Romeo Travis, who also was on the team last summer, & Dru Joyce have no chance of making the roster....They wouldn't even be in an NBA camp if they didn't know LeBron so well.

It's nice to see Tractor Traylor getting back out there, although he is a long shot to make our squad now that we drafted two big men this year.
