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 The Game throwing a no-look alley-oop to James Harden?
There have been plenty of high-profile NBA players getting in on the action so far, from DeMar DeRozan to Harden to Gilbert Arenas — 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.
