Kevin Durant To Star In 2011 Goodman League Season Opener

It's June, and you know what that means: the Goodman League is getting underway. The outdoor basketball league will begin its 28th season at Barry Farms in Southeast Washington D.C. on Monday night, and the headline matchup is one you probably want to check out. Yes, Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma City Thunder star who is known to drop in and play some games back home, will be playing in the game.

This isn't the first time Durant has played at Barry Farms. In fact, he's been back at least one time every summer since he entered the league, and his history at Barry Farms goes all the way back to when he was 16 years old. He's had a couple memorable moments in these games, dropping 60 points three summers ago and following it up with just 52 points in 2009. Durant may have played 4,000-plus minutes of basketball this year, between the FIBA World Championships, the regular season and three rounds of the playoffs, but he always has room to come back and play in the Goodman League.

All the action gets underway at 6 p.m. Monday. For more information, here's the Goodman League web site.
