Kevin Durant’s Exhibition Game to Feature LeBron James, Blake Griffin


Kevin Durant is making good on his promise to bring a star-studded exhibition game to OKC during this NBA lockout, and some of the League’s biggest names will take part in the game. From the Oklahoman: “Details of the event are expected to be announced at a news conference Wednesday afternoon. According to numerous sources with knowledge of the event, the game will pit two star-studded squads against each other, with one side being Durant’s team and the other being former Oklahoma star Blake Griffin’s team. Miami Heat star LeBron James is one of several players who have been confirmed for the event. New Orleans guard Chris Paul and Heat guard Dwyane Wade also are expected to show. The game is tentatively scheduled to be played Thursday, Oct. 27, inside the Cox Convention Center, which holds just shy of 14,000 for basketball. Other potential stars that could make an appearance include L.A. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and New York forward Carmelo Anthony, as well as Thunder guards Russell Westbrook and James Harden.”

    Yeah now its common place. And the same players playing in every game. They should start a 1 on 1 tournament now. lol.

    You are right, the games have lost their luster. Once I saw John Wall literally throw the ball out of bounds and dunk it, I knew that these games “jumped the shark” NBA stars are not even attempting to play defense anymore in fear of an injury. Still Blake playing sounds intriguing.

    it’s only a matter of time before the players start to get bored too

    Kobe’s playing!!!!!!!!!! I’d pay a dollar to see that. I bet Kobe tries to out score durant to show him who’s king. He won’t do. I’m a HUGE kobe fan, but KD’s the truth. Kobe’s still better tho
