So I was being a huge nerd and reading every possible thing I can about basketball (which, quite frankly, is pretty much what I do 12 hours of every day) when I came across the funniest paragraph I’ve read in at least a month or so (NBA Fanhouse):
The Drew League in the heart of Watts is the longest, and most competitive, running summer league in the world, going strong for over 30 years. It’s also where NBA stars like Nick Young, Baron Davis, Paul Pierce, Bobby Brown, Gabe Pruitt and many others show up to display their skills.
It’s hilarious how Pruitt, a supposed NBA star, played in the D-League this season and averaged only 11 points per game. I think I’m probably an NBA star, too, because I scored 17 a game in intramural basketball.
Anyway, Demar DeRozan recently scored 46 points in a Drew League game. I was very impressed until I realized he was playing “NBA stars” Bobby Brown, Nick Young and Gabe Pruitt.
If you want to learn more about the Drew League or hear about former NBA star (get it?) Tyronn Lue “getting Baptized” (aka truly embarrassed) during his one trip to the league, watch the following video. I can’t say I really enjoyed it myself, though.
