Locked Out NBA Stars Durant, Wall tearing it up in the Pro-am league

21 Aug

NBA stars Kevin Durant and John Wall teamed up with the DC Goodman League All-Stars last night to take on the Drew League Stars from California in a thrilling exhibition game, that ended up with a one point victory margin for the Goodman League side. The final score was 135-134, Kevin Durant was the player of the game because his two free throws sealed his team’s one point victory and viscous block on Oklahoma City Thunder teammate, James Harden saved the day. James Harden chipped in 28 points for the Drew League, while Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks led the Drew League with 34 points while playing against John Wall of the Washington Wizards, who helped Durant out with 28 points and some amazing assists. Wall claimed that playing with Durant was a thing of beauty because finding assists while playing with the NBA’s scoring champion, is easier than ever. These guys love playing basketball and hope the labor situation can be resolved just in time for the season. Last night’s exhibition game was not a disappointment once again as the players took the game very seriously and played their hearts out, but some expressed frustration towards the labor situation like Wall, who says its about playing the game I love, not about money. The Goodman league and the Drew league also had other notable NBA players playing in the game like DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings and NBA veteran Marcus Banks, but we know when the season starts or if there’s even a season, Durant and Wall will be extremely lethal and ready to play.
