    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Orleans Hornets

    Everybody wants to play with Chris Paul. We’re not even talking about his recruiting as a free agent aside (at least until the lockout ends, when the rumors will start up again). It’s also true of CP3’s charity game. Paul is hosting a charity game Oct. 1 on the campus of Winston Salem University to…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Seven

    Here’s the pitch: It’s like “Big” meets basketball. You with me? You’ve got a world-famous basketball player, and this high school kid, and through a magical encounter they switch bodies. Hijinks ensue, everybody learns some valuable lessons, tearful moments follow then kid and the baller are able to switch back, just in time for the…

    Goodman Drew Harden Durant

    October 9 was to be the day of the first NBA preseason games. They haven’t been officially cancelled, but good luck finding anyone who thinks there will be games that night. But there will be a game that evening — the rematch of the Goodman and Drew leagues. From the moment they walked off the…

    kevin-durant-game-2

    Not everybody is going to Las Vegas to workout and play in a few games. While the “lockout league” is drawing the headlines it’s not drawing all the stars or even all the big teams. There are teams running their own minicamps, including the Thunder and Magic. The Thunder’s are doing their own mini-camp this…

    LeBron James

    The summer of pro-am games is about to jump the shark. That comes when all the big names start jumping into every game, representing cities where they have no real connection. The folks in Philadelphia should get a good show, but that seems to be what is happening for the Philly vs. Melo league contest…

    Sometimes Nike seems like a marketing company that happens to make some shoes on the side. They do that marketing thing oh, so well. Take this latest ad, which features Kevin Durant and some guys from the original “Back to the Future” movies promoting a new Nike shoe (and an upcoming charity event). This “Back…

    Durant tattoos

    Ah Maryland, the beautiful state on the Eastern seaboard. Member of the original 13 colonies. The state that gave us Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken Jr. The state that is home to the U.S. Naval Academy. Maryland, where the official state song — Maryland my Maryland — refers to Abraham Lincoln as a “tyrant” and…

  10. Nate Robinson not headed to the NFL, Europe maybe

    Sep 5, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

    Nate Robinson liked to do a little flirting with the NFL. Which was cute, but he is due $4 million next season as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder and if you think playing some hoops in Europe puts that at risk imagine what getting trying to tackle Chris Johnson will do. So, the…

Indy is supposed…

    Goodman Drew Harden Durant

    It was the game that started the buzz — West Coast vs. East Coast, Los Angeles vs. Washington D.C., Goodman League vs. Drew League. It was the game that set the stage for Goodman vs. Melo and soon Goodman vs. Rucker. The Drew League wanted a rematch — Drew lost by 1 point, there was…

  14. How about Goodman vs. Rucker Park showdown? It’s on.

    Sep 2, 2011, 1:59 PM EST

    rucker-park

    This could be better than any of the summer pro-am league showdowns this summer (and beating Goodman vs. Drew and Goodman vs. Melo will be hard): How about Washington D.C.’s Goodman League vs. ECB Rucker Parck? The best of New York now in the mix. It is set for Oct. 1, according to the official…

    LeBron James

    We already told you how LeBron James and Kevin Durant really put on a show at the Goodman League vs. Melo League showdown in Baltimore this week. KD rolled in late (which is why the game started 45 minutes late) and then proceeded to drop 59 while often guarded by LeBron. In return, LeBron dropped…

  16. Goodman vs. Melo video highlights

    LeBron James

    Damn, Eric Bledsoe. That’s just one of the things you’ll be saying after you see the highlight packages just starting to come out of the Goodman vs. Melo league showdown in Baltimore Tuesday night.

    Kevin Durant matched up on LeBron James. One-on-one. All night long. That was the show at the Goodman vs. Melo league showdown in Baltimore Tuesday night. Actually, that was just part of the show, which is why it was a special night. The result was 59 points for Durant. The result was LeBron — who…

    Aug 29, 2011, 3:26 PM EST

    kevin-durant-backpack

    We’ve told you that Kevin Durant is going to be a movie star. Clooney-like. He’s going to the big screen in a major motion picture. And they will not be filming much of that in Oklahoma City now. Thanks a lot lockout. The Oklahoman spells it out. This is an economic hit to OKC —…

  19. Video: Highlights from Elite 24 at Venice Beach

    Aug 29, 2011, 8:45 AM EST

    Kevin Durant

    Big names were coming. Kevin Durant was there. Of course he was — if there was a high-level pro-am game this summer, Durant has been there. He’s sharpening his game, more importantly this has been a summer of sharp little bit of grassroots marketing by KD. Back to the issue at hand, the Elite 24…

  20. Video: Kevin Durant and bowling and dancing, woo-hoo!

    Aug 28, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    kevin-durant-game-2

    Apparently Kevin Durant‘s website is starting a new feature called “The 35th Hour.” See, because, Kevin Durant wears No.35. It’s a pun, of sorts. A play on words. Anyway, one of their promos is out, and features a video of Durant doing a pretty ridiculous dance after bowling a strike. Check it out: Why is…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    NBA stars may be headed down under. If — we keep saying “if” even though it almost certainly is a “when” — the lockout drags into the regular season some top NBA players may be headed to Australia for an exhibition tour of a few games, reports the News Herald (via the Orange County Register).…

    West Team's Kevin Durant of Oklahoma Cit

    Could Kevin Durant open a movie better than Denzel Washington? Shaq? We may soon find out.

    So the Drew League out of Watts and Goodman League out of Barry Farms had their big event on Saturday.
