LeBron James Drops 33 Points In Drew League

NBA players have been suiting up to play in the Drew League all summer, though Bron had yet to make an appearanceuntil yesterday. Via Yahoo!: “Los Angeles’ pro-am Drew League has played host to several NBA players over its years. But perhaps none have been bigger than LeBron James, who made an appearance on Saturday. ‘Seeing him on that court in this community with those kids and the impact he made in that hour and a half of play, this was by far the best day we’ve had in the Drew League,’ Drew League director Dino Smiley told Yahoo! Sports. Smiley said he received a call Thursday from a representative for Cleveland Cavaliers guard Baron Davis saying a major NBA star was attending Saturday. … Smiley eventually received another call Saturday afternoon revealing that James was coming to the Leon H. Washington Park gym near the neighborhood of Watts. James arrived shortly after in a SUV. He was wearing a T-shirt and khaki shorts, and was joined by an entourage of about a half dozen people including Davis. To Smiley’s surprise, James wanted to play. James was given a No. 2 jersey for a team called ‘Cheaters II.’ ’I thought LeBron was coming just to hang out, but he asked for a uniform,’ Smiley said. ‘The crowd was just electrified when he walked in.’ Smiley said many fans tweeted and sent text messages about James’ arrival. ‘Every edge’ of the court in the tiny gym, Smiley said, was packed. Smiley said the gym doors were eventually closed shut during James’ game by law enforcement officers, who told fans if they left they couldn’t return. With Davis coaching, James led Cheaters II to a close victory with 33 points. Once the game ended, the crowd rushed James to get autographs and pictures. After about five minutes, James’ entourage whisked him away to the locker room. James is scheduled to hold his basketball camp on Thursday in San Diego.”

    Nice from James to play there.

  • RoG23

    Wow. People are really gonna hate on a guy who just went out and did this. He obviously created a special moment for these people that will be unmatched forever. Took time from his schedule to give back to the people, and the first comment is a HATE comment. Max is a follower who wants to be recognized for his hate. Mission accomplished, hater.

    Special thanks to Kevin Hauser 310 Management for bringing LeBron James to our Drew League.
    Kevin and his team at 310 are great people and really care about the local kids.

    @RoG23 relax dude. if people are gonna hate just let them hate. clearly max was having a joke. no offense to max but im pretty sure Lebron to give two donkeys about what the hell Max thinks.

  • Jackie Moon

    @6Marjon – You’re right, tomorrow Max will have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that he had before they woke up today. He’ll have the same personal problems he has today. Meanwhile Lebron will have $tat$$$$.

    LeBron isn’t that bad of a guy. MJ’s ego will never be surpassed.

    I feel bad for max. hi hater! Lol

  • MLK4Life

    He needs to stop punking out and get in the Dunk Contest as he promised two seasons ago. MJ, Kobe, Dominique, Vince…all did it. Blake Griffin vs. LeBron James would be huge for the Contest. Get in the Dunk Contest LeBron.

  • jking6coop

  • brandon

    If he entered tha dunk contest he wouldnt win. His dunks are too basic, just hard bangers. No creativity

  • @Deknowz

    In all seriousness, your at the gym playing a summer tourney then out of no where you end up guarding LeBron James for 40 minutes! FLM with a spiked bat! lol

    Alright, alright. Yes, LeBron was a d-bag this year, HOWEVA we must not forget that Jordan slapped Steve Kerr because Phil Jackson called a play for Kerr in PRACTICE.

  • dustin

    As you can see this wasn’t a playoff game in the Drew League or he would have had 12 points. You have to admit Lebron may go down as the best “regular season” player to ever play the game.

  • http://Dyckmanpark.com Ice

    Lebron James needs to come to dyckmanpark for some real run! Drew league nonsense

  • Jake

    That Kevin Hauser 310 Management guy has all the stars. How does he do it ?
    He gets the hottest girls drives the coolest cars looks like a punk and still get stars like LeBron James to come play in a pick up game at the drew.If I sound like a hater guess what I am that dude has it all.

  • Jack

    Kevin has money thats how he does it Kobe Bryant doesn’t hang with chumps. He brought Kobe to play at the Drew league this year.

  • Sammy

    310 Management can you bring Kevin Durant to the Los Angeles runs?
