Hello to everyone!! Since I have been home from the Orlando Summer League I have been putting a lot of time into my camp which starts Aug 3-7. The camp is a skills camp for ages 9-18. The camp will help young players with their fundamentals and also teach them about being a complete athlete - things like nutrition, getting rest, teamwork, hard work, and dedication. I have more information on my website, www.kasibpowell.com

With that being said I can start to elaborate on what happened in Orlando: I will start with letting the readers know that I have been through many summer leagues and that this was the hardest I've been in - by far.  Still, it worked out just right because I was in the best shape of my life when I went out to Orlando. Imagine if I wasn't ready, or at least in great shape? I wouldn't have lasted more then two days. Even though I was in great shape, the week before the games was brutal! It did, however, show who had worked out before they got to summer league and who was chillin' and enjoying there off-season a little too much!! During the games I did play well but I'm my hardest critic and I believe that I could have played better. I finished up averaging 15 points, 6 boards and 3 assists. I also shot 49% from the field and 57% from the 3-point line.

I finished up second team all Orlando Summer league. I really wanted 1st team but I couldn't be mad because James Harden was named to the 1st team. Whenever someone is ranked or placed in front of you, (pause) it makes it a lot easier to sleep when you have respect for the other persons game. Out of the 10 people named to 1st and 2nd teams, everyone was a draft pick. 1st team, Russell Westbrook (lottery (4th pick)), Harden (lottery (3rd pick)), Tyler Hansbrough ( lottery (13th pick)), Ryan Anderson (20th pick), Roy Hibbert (18th pick). The 2nd team was J.R. Giddens (1st rd), D.J. White (1st rd) Marreese Speights (1st rd) Nick Fazekas (2nd rd), and nobody else but your boy, undrafted, no contract(!) Kasib Powell. This is why I push to be at the top level. I belong here!
