The highly anticipated Goodman League vs. Drew League summer basketball game, dubbed "Capital Punishment", officially has a date and venue, after some early scheduling and logistical problems. The two teams will match up at Trinity University in Washington, D.C. on August 20 at 6:00 P.M.
The Goodman League team is coached by league commissioner Miles Rawls, and includes such NBA players as Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley, Gary Neal and Washington Wizard John Wall. Beasley even took time out to record this video in anticipation of the match-up. The Drew League, coached by NBA player Baron Davis, answers with the likes of James Harden, DeMar DeRozan, Dorell Wright and Wizard Nick Young.
The event has drawn enough attention that it will now be broadcast live on pay-per-view, hosted by ex-NBA player Marques Johnson. The pay-per-view cost is $4.99 until August 19, and then $9.99 on the day of the event. The game can be purchased at thebasketballchannel.net
