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.”
