The Drew League in Los Angeles is an active hotbed for summer basketball, providing fans a much-needed relief from the lull of the offseason. Fans never know who will lace up their kicks when they walk through the doors at King Drew High School. Coming off a jaw-dropping 57-point performance in Week 8, The Clozers’ and current Detroit Piston Brandon Jennings once again dazzled the crowd with a 56-point showing. After back-to-back 50-point weekends he was again named Drew League Player of the Week – and rightfully so. Read More »
Kevin Durant is making a habit of upsetting rappers. We told you earlier this week about how Durant lost a $20,000 bet to The Game when he made this three-pointer. Durant has come out and said there was no bet, which made The Game very angry yesterday. But by the end of the day, the two spoke with each other and cleared up their misunderstanding.

It’s been at least a decade since we made it through the NBA Playoffs without a controversial call, and this year was no different. Even with all of the advanced technology, the replays and the added pressure refs are under to get it all just right, the reaction to nearly every game – and this is a major downside of Twitter – was to skin and sell the referees body parts. With OKC and Miami in the Finals, the two best teams, but more importantly the two most exciting teams, hopefully we can just focus on the ball. However, it will help to have Steve Javie around.

Smith, then earlier this week, Danilo Gallinari, and now Kenyon Martin. Is there anyone left? Of course, Martin is supposed to be a free agent so there’s no guarantee his terrible lip tattoo even makes it back to Denver, but there is a chance we see him playing in the NBA later this year.
