The Portland rookie is having a very impressive summer league.

Caleb Swanigan had a double-double, again.

That’s all he is. He is a human double-double. He was put on this earth to rebound errant basketballs. As I have said before, if I had to throw a baby from a burning building the one person I would want on the street to catch the child is Caleb Swanigan.

Biggie’s latest double-double helped the Portland Trail Blazers reach the championship game of the Las Vegas NBA Summer League. Biggie had 15 points, 11 rebounds, and 2 assists in an 87-82 win over the memphis Grizzlies. Portland was the 16 seed in this 16 team tournament (I am not sure how the seedings go), but they are now in the championship against either the Lakers or Mavrericks.

The Championship will be played tomorrow night and will likely be on one of the ESPN networks like many of these games have been. In 6 games Biggie is averaging 14.8 points and 10.3 rebounds.
