The 2022 NBA Summer League is in full swing. Which means first and second year players get to show the basketball world their skills and talents for their respected NBA teams. 

Former West Virginia star, Miles Mcbride is entering his second year with the New York Knicks. So far in this year’s summer league he has proven that he can be an effective player for the Knicks. His scoring, playmaking, and defensive abilities make him a valuable player for any team’s roster.

On Sunday against the Bulls, he shot 6-for-8 with 14 points and 6 assists. The Knicks would go on to win this game 101-69 making them 2-0 on the young summer league season.
