As a rookie last season, Kent Bazemore was undoubtedly the most animated player on any NBA bench. Fans of the Golden State Warriors quickly learned of his presence and grew accustomed to his wild assortment of celebrations.
But after some surprisingly strong stints in the Warriors' playoff games and a very impressive showing in summer league so far, where he's showing he can do a lot more than just play defense and wave a towel -- averaging 15.7 points and 6.0 rebound through three games -- Bazemore's value is on the rise.
