Goodman League vs Drew League Rosters Revealed

Everyone was excited for last night’s epic streetball showdown at Dyckman Park in NYC, but that’ll be nothing compared to the hype of the Goodman League vs Drew League NBA star-studded game next month in DC. (Good news: the game will be streamed live on the web for those unable to attend, according to Wizards Extreme.) From Mars Reel: “Arguably the two best summer leagues in the nation will have at it on August 20, 2011 at 6:30pm at Coolidge High School in Washington, DC at 6315 5th St. N.W. … Now the biggest question here is, who will be representing the West Coast and who will be representing the East Coast. The rosters are as follows: The Goodman League: Kevin Durant (OKC Thunder), John Wall (WAS Wizards), Tywon Lawson (DEN Nuggets), Gary Neal (SA Spurs), Tyreke Evans (SAC Kings), Michael Beasley (MIN Timberwolves), DeMarcus Cousins (SAC Kings), Josh Selby (MEM Grizzlies), Sam Young (MEM Grizzlies), Donte Green (SAC Kings), Hugh ‘Baby Shaq’ Jones (AND1 Mixtape Tour), Emanuel ‘Duce’ Jones and Warren ‘D-Nice’ Jefferson … The Drew League: James Harden (OKC Thunder), DeMar DeRozan (TOR Raptors), Nick Young (WAS Wizards), Dorrell Wright (GS Warriors), Brandon Jennings (MIL Bucks), Javelle McGee (WAS Wizards), Craig Smith (LA Clippers), Pooh Jeter (SAC Kings), Bobby Brown (Aris BC), Marcus Williams (MEM Grizzlies) and 3 players TBA.”

    Wow. Goodman league team is going to dominate.

  • PS

    That’s straight except for Goodman having the two SacKings players who aren’t from the DMV and never ran there until this summer.

  • DieselMechanic

    Goodman is going to slaughter them.

    The Drew League is lacking some big men. I’m still rooting for DeMar DeRozan though! Dunk on ‘em!

  • Sizzle

    Goodman League easily. This doesn’t even seem fair IMO

  • that dude

    So i guess Yall are just not gonna mention team Nike’s “L”, I can’t find nothing about them anywhere today. One lost and their hype machine is over huh? WOW

  • heart grit grind

    is it gonna be streamed online?

  • LP

    uh its a streetball game, only 5 players on the court at a time… You know Durant will be on the court the whole game, so half the players from Goodman wont get but a few minutes of playing time. IT will be close… You know James Harden and Nick Young gon drop 30 apiece… it won’t be a blowout…

  • eugene

    Baby Shaq should be in the league!

  • bolo

    Here is my thing ,,its a very good thing that all the NBA players are playing in the games ,but let’s not forget its STREETBALL where are the good streetball players that play in these leagues ? Let’s not just dump them off to the side to watch basicly a #nbapickupgame
    You guys have the right approach but are forgetting wat STREETBALL is all about ,then look @ the rosters 1 side is #stacked wat is bradon Jennings gonna do ? Score a 100 dats the kinda numbers he would have to put up to beat that team .sure ppl will pack the gym to see NBA dudes play ,but they won’t be talking about it next week ,next year if its a blow out …it won’t be a #CLASSIC LIKE #TEAMNIKE VS #OOHHWAY @DYCKMAN PARK

    Wat makes a classic STREETBALL game is seeing park legends vs guys who played in #nba #PAST or #PRESENT
    Heck even seeing guys who played top college ball vs street legends is #CLASSIC EPIC BATTLES

  • fruizm

  • tysteady

    if this was an NBA game the Goodman league would dominate, but its a glorified scrimmage where little defense will be played

    I wouldn’t be shocked if either side won,

  • bolo

  • tyler

  • T-Money

    sorry, still don’t care. nick young will score 40+ tho – he’s averaging like 1 assist a game in the league, he’s not passing to anyone in rec ball.


    tyler, michael beas is playing.

  • Bimmer

  • fruizm

    @Sizzle…thanks!! im an idiot for not reading haha.

  • Matt Park

    The Drew League still has three players who are unannounced… Let’s hope at least on of them is an athletic bigman.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Why?^ They have McGee. Let that kid play every min. He’ll dominate in this league.

  • JL

    Nick Young doesn’t pass in the NBA either. What else is new.

  • TL
