Since there are no real NBA games happening any time soon, Kevin Durant and fellow Goodman League teammates will head to the West Coast today to take on stars from the Drew League. The game will take place at Long Beach State University at 6:30 pm Pacific time, so 9:30 p.m. Eastern
The Drew League will look to avenge a one-point loss from August. Kevin Durant scored 44 points and was the game MVP in the Goodman League's 135-134 win. Drew League promoters are calling the game "The Big Payback" and the Long Beach gym should be packed.
The star power in the game is bright, especially considering Rudy Gay of the Memphis Grizzlies will make his first on-court action in seven months since shoulder surgery. Wizards star point guard John Wall is scheduled to will suit up for the Goodman League, and Wizard teammate Nick Young will play for the rival West Coast squad.
Other players scheduled for the game are Michael Beasley, DeMarcus Cousins, James Harden, Brandon Jennings, Donte Green, Sam Young, Marcus Banks, Dorell Wright, Ryan Hollins and Craig Smith.
LA radio station KJLH is broadcasting a celebrity game beginning at 5 p.m. Pacific.
