The Drew League vs. Goodman League may not have been as star-studded as The South Florida All-Star Classic but it definitely provided excitement.

Titled “The Big Payback” this go round, the home team won, 151-144. Kevin Durant scored 50 points, John Wall had 55 plus, He hit his dougie (so what it’s old, he’s one of the best at it, so he gets a pass) and Durant’s Thunder teammate, James Harden-who was playing for the Drew League, had 48.

The Goodman team was comprised of Durant and Wall plus, Rudy Gay- who looks like he’s back from last season’s injury and surgery, King’s forward Donte Green, Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley and others. While the L.A. team was fairly stacked; Bucks guard Brandon Jennings, Wizards guard, Nick Young, Trevor Ariza, Matt Barnes, the #2 draft pick Derrick Williams to name a few.

On hand to watch, WNBA legend and Sparks star, Tina Thompson, former Lakers and Clippers great, Norm Nixon, Baron Davis and Russell Westbrook.

It felt great to be watching basketball again. These guys took it serious, Matt Barnes even got a tech (I know, surprising right! :giggle:) Makes me even more excited for the upcoming season. Continuing with my mantra as of late, “Get a deal done, PLEASE”

And yes, Round 3 is already being discussed for a “neutral” location.
