David Thorpe is covering the NBA summer league for ESPN Insider. Below are his observations from early play in Las Vegas. Check out his previous dispatch from Orlando right here.

John Wall, PG, Washington Wizards
Forget about the turnovers and the ugly shooting mechanics. Wall showed everyone why he's on track to be a star in this league. He combines a real comfort with being the best player on the floor while always thinking about his teammates. He's going to impact the game immediately on both ends and is a strong candidate for ROY, because he'll have the ball in his hands all the time.
