Goodman League Vs. Drew League Rematch Could Feature Kobe Bryant

The Drew League is already planning a rematch against the Goodman League for September 10 in Los Angeles following Saturday's "Capital Punishment" exhibition. That's a short amount of time to get sponsors and an arena, so it's going to be tough to have the game on that day. That all may change, though, if Kobe Bryant is involved.

The Los Angeles Lakers star still has not committed to playing, but Drew League officials have scheduled a meeting with Bryant on Tuesday to discuss the potential of playing in the game. Via Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Times:

"I think he wants to play because he's hungry like that," Drew League Commissioner Oris "Dino" Smiley said of Bryant late Monday evening in a phone interview. "We have some real solid basketball and it's well organized. I think he wants to be a part of it."

Smiley said Bryant's presence won't make or break the rematch, but it certainly will be a huge boost either way.
