Notes from a trip to the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

You have to give it to Joey Dorsey. If you want to immediately show the coaching staff and your teammates that you're willing to stand up for your guys, getting thrown out of a summer league game is kind of the way to go. Apparently Dorsey found a hard foul given by Dee Brown to Gustavo Barrera was a bit out of line, and decided to let Brown know about it. He kept at it, and eventually the ref bounced him . The best part? Yeah, he was in street clothes. He tweaked his ankle yesterday, and took today off. So a 2nd round rookie managed to get himself thrown out of a summer league game that he wasn't actually playing in. We're not sure whether to reward the young man for his tenacity and passion, or simply tell the guy, "Dude. Summer league. Settle down. "

Oh, and by the way, Dee Brown ended up tipping in the game tying shot to send the game to overtime, where the Wizards defeated the Rockets. So there's that.
