Drew League is back! Week 01

Summer basketball has officially started. The Drew League kicks off its 41st year. If you don’t know about the Drew League, they are the number 1 summer Pro-Am basketball league in the world – located in the heart of Los Angeles. This is my 4th year as their photographer. Saturday was a good opening day – great basketball and lots of familiar faces. High School superstar Stanley Johnson made his Drew League debut playing for a new team, Sole Clinics. He had an amazing performance! Nick Young (LA Lakers) came out to support his team M.H.P. Baron Davis played early on with Cheaters, while JaVale McGee was coaching his team early in the morning.

The defending champions, The Blazers, were presented with a championship banner hanging up in the gym before their game.

For those that do not know, the NBA does not allow their players to play in any summer league activities until their contracts are over for the season, so you can expect to see NBA guys playing after July 1st. For now, you can catch them hanging out and supporting their friends and family!

If you missed the excitment today, be sure to come out on Sunday. Rap superstar The Game will be playing with his new team, “La Familia”. He will also be coaching “The Robinhood Project” team. Make sure you come out early because it will be packed! To see schedules and scores, check out www.drewleague.com
