Goodman League vs. Melo League to Include LeBron, CP3, Carmelo and More


Looking for a sequel to Drew League vs. Goodman League? You may or may not be getting that soon enough, but in the meantime, this Goodman League vs. Melo League game—reportedly going down on August 30—is looking pretty solid. HOOPSWORLD has the scoop: “After the Goodman League defeated the Drew League last weekend, they were soon being dubbed the best summer league in the country. However, many other regions that didn’t get a chance to compete disagreed with that sentiment and wanted their shot against Goodman’s finest. On August 30, one such league will have that opportunity. The Melo League is located in Baltimore and has had many NBA players in their gym throughout the course of the summer. They’ve been one of the more competitive pro-am leagues in the nation over the last few years and want to see if their All-Stars can take down the group from D.C. Entering this game, the Melo League is the likely favorite and not just because they’ll have home court advantage at St. Frances Academy in Baltimore. They have a star-studded group that is sure to attract plenty of attention. The Melo League will be represented by Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Josh Selby, Gary Neal and Donte Greene. The Goodman League will be represented by Kevin Durant, John Wall, Brandon Jennings, DeMarcus Cousins and Hugh ‘Baby Shaq’ Jones. … Durant will be matched up against James and Anthony throughout the game while Paul is taking on Wall and Jennings. It doesn’t get much better than that. Unfortunately, this game won’t be streamed online, but there are still tickets available. The gym doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets can be purchased on game day. There will be cameramen on hand to record a highlight reel of the game, but it won’t be available live. The game will tip-off at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.”

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    This is the kind of ish NBA TV needs to be showing instead of reruns of GameTime.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    Be there… or be square.

  • J.C.

    Pfft… LeBron just teaming up and jumping on someone else’s squad again…

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    ^ please save all that. Melo reached out to him…half the guys mentioned just jumped on their respective squads; only KD, Josh Selby, Donte Greene, Gary Neal, and Baby Shack have any connection with those cities.

  • Jesse

    Anybody have a link to buy tickets? I know the article says you can purchase them day of but can you purchase them in advance too? I would def head down to Baltimore for this but not going to take the drive from Philly and then not get in.

    Sounds dope. Too bad it’s not going to be live =(

  • Burn

    Damn that sounds great. I’m from europe. I definitly would pay to see that game online. The leagues needs to find a way to publish these games. With no NBA there a lot of people out there who would watch these games. I send a prayer to the god of basketball. MJ – make it happen …

  • Allenp

    Somebody might get shot in the ticket line. Lol.

  • greg

    i hope he doesnt have to play against any ameteurs because we know how he has played against them in the past

    Its gonna be a madhouse and St. Francis only holds a so many people. If it was filled to capacity for the Durant/Jennings matchup, imagine this.

  • http://slamonline.com Neitel

    where is NBATV when we need them?

  • http://slamonline.com Neitel

    not live?? then it never happened…

  • http://nicekicks.com Meloman2.0

    Finally!! Melo is playing!

  • fruizm

    i would definitely spend $700 on a plane ticket from mexico city to baltimore just to watch this!!

  • BRAVO

    WOW thats def gon b crazy ! WHO GON STOP KEVIN DURANT THO? WE ALL KNOW LEBRON WILL SCORE MAYBE 4 POINTS MAX IN THE 4TH QUARTER! MELO WILL DO HIS THING SAME WITH CP3. BUT GOODMAN U GOT THIS HANDS DOWN !

  • LA Huey

    If they aren’t going to make it available for streaming, I hope they set things up so we can watch it later somehow.

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    So…..Jarvis Crittenton “allegedly” shoots and kills a mother of 4 and Slam is quiet as a mouse about it but Kobe “supposedly” injures some guy’s wrist in church and Bron getting dunked on by a Chinese guy is front page news?
    Good job, Slam. Keep on milking unimportant stories for views and forget about stories that really warrant our attention.

  • @Deknowz

    They dropped the ball on this one BIGTIME! I would literally pay to watch a stream of that game and I’m sure I’m not alone!

  • Slips

    Don’t know why people are bringing up NBATV. Why exactly would they show a came featuring several NBA players during the lockout when they don’t even show the players on their team websites? ESPN needs to pick this up, though!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Slick Ric

    damn, Durant gone need another superstar. If his team wins, I would be relatively impressed.

  • Jesse

    Slips – ESPN has a partnership with the NBA. Won’t happen.

  • http://www.yomamajokes.com LilKDub503

    @JTaylor21: Javaris Crittenton isn’t even in the NBA anymore. He’s a former 12th man who was extremely stupid, it was only a formality to put him on the site. It’s not SLAM’s fault that he’s irrelevant. Anyway, this is something I can’t wait to see on Hoopmixtape. Or The Mars Reel.

    I’ve been waiting since the knicks got knocked out to see melo get in a run again–and this won[t be broadcast!

  • http://facebook.com/tronjohnson ChiefKeewatin

    what about the fans in Canada, I can’t describe how much I want, no I need to see this

  • Mike Jones

    Melo will go nuts for at least 65 plus.

  • Tobi

    @JaeAmazin BJ

  • B

    Who holdin melo or cp3??? U can say the same for Durant but melo gon show he the best scorer in the league… Hands down…

  • Haig

    Yo, HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS!!!!?????

  • D

    Tickets are $40, $100 for VIP floor seats. They moved the game to Morgan State which holds 4,500 people. It’s still gonna be hard to get tickets. There live right near Trinity University and got there way early to get tickets to the Goodman Drew game and it was still crazy. This one is gonna be insane if you really want tickets camp out at Morgan State by 3 or 4 for sure and wait.
