Durant drops 35 at the Drew League

The Drew

League has been a gift from the Basketball Highlight Gods all

summer long. Did you ever think that you were going to see video of

Harden?

There have been plenty of high-profile NBA players getting in on

the action so far, from

— but none of these guys command the attention that Kevin

Durant did on Sunday morning.

Durant suited up for LAUNFD against the Money Gang (which

features rapper The Game and was home to James Harden a few weeks

ago). Although his team lost 92-90, KD compiled his own

mini-highlight reel on his way to 35 points and 17 boards:

Wow. LeBron James may be the NBA’s undisputed best player, but I

would rather watch Durant play pick-up ball for a day — no

question. In a league like the Drew where defense is an

afterthought to dunks and crossovers, KD is king. Hopefully this

isn’t the last we see of him at the Drew this summer.
