From December 19th through the 22nd, all 27 G League teams spent their time trying to stay warm in Las Vegas as they competed in the G League Winter Showcase. As the marquee event of the season, all G League players used those four days to try to show their skills in front of NBA scouts in an attempt to eventually get a shot in the NBA on either a two-way or 10-day deal.
Although there were a wide array of players that impressed during the Winter Showcase, Ridiculous Upside is proud to announce the fifteen standouts from this marquee event. The criteria behind these picks had more to do with that player’s overall efficiency than with whether his team won or loss.
While winning is obviously an important part of the G League, it takes a step back in an event like this that is heavily player-oriented. In addition to that, we’ve also created an All-Assignee team to celebrate the player that shined in the Showcase that were on a standard NBA deal at the time of that event.
