Like a thirsty man crawling through the desert begging for water, we NBA fans are desperate for more basketball (and the NBA Finals only just ended. I shudder to think what a lockout will bring).
Well, look no further, intrepid hoops fanatics. For Oklahoma Cith Thunder’s Kevin Durant’s off-the-backboard alley oop to himself in LA’s Drew League is making the internet rounds like a celebutant sex tape.
If you don’t know about the Drew League, go here to check it out. In a nutshell, it’s a summer league that has grown from a place to showcase LA’s talent to a place where some of the NBA’s best stop by to ball. And if you couldn’t tell by the video, it’s a pretty intimate setting, making it a pretty exclusive game to see in person. You can check them out, though, from the comfort of your couch by checking out the games on UStream.
In addition to Durant this summer, NBA’ers Demar DeRoazan, Ron Artest, Steve Blake, Shannon Brown, Joe Smith, Michael Beasley and Nick Young have all shown up. They might only stick around for a game or two, or maybe not even that much. But with the lockout looming, don’t be shocked if we we’re quenching our thirst for basketball more often with Drew League highlights.
