With the Los Angeles based Drew League now over, that leaves only the Washington D.C. Goodman League as a place for talent like Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant or Orlando Magic rookie Victor Oladipo to showcase their skills.
Durant, Oladipo and many more NBA players, like Thomas Robinson of the Portland Trail Blazers, Josh Shelby of the Los Angeles Lakers, Michael Beasley of the Phoenix Suns (at least for a few more days) and more all showed up recently and put on quite the show for the lucky spectators in attendance.
Unlike NBA games, the ‘recreational league’ allows fans to see the raw, showmanship style talent of players which you don’t see in the NBA outside of a select few. Even the normally casual Kevin Durant got into the flashy stuff while Oladipo decided to try and take on the best small forward in the league during a one on one showdown.
It’s a solid video that’s well worth your time if you’re an NBA fan or a basketball fan in general, despite it being a bit sloppy.
