Arkansas’ most recent 1st round NBA Draft pick continues to make a name for himself.

NBA: Summer League-Philadelphia 76ers vs Chicago Bulls Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bulls will have a much different look next season after summer deals sent Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah to the Knicks while the Bulls signed Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo. It remains to be seen how Bobby Portis will fit into this new roster, but he’s doing his best to make his presence felt in the NBA’s Summer League.

Heading into Sunday’s semifinal against Cleveland, Portis is leading the Bulls in points per game (15.8), rebounds (9.4), blocks (1.0) and minutes (29.2). The Bulls are the only undefeated team at this point in the tournament.

Portis’ play has not gone unnoticed. He’s gotten a lot of praise on social media since the team started playing in Las Vegas a week or so ago. Here’s a sample:

The semifinals of the NBA Summer League season are Sunday night and will be televised on ESPN2 and WatchESPN. If the Bulls win, Portis and the crew will play in the championship game against the Minnesota/Phoenix winner on Monday, July 18th.
