Last night another Air West run took place in the heart of Los Angeles. One of the Los Angeles basketball players who has been making quite a buzz around the world is Kwame Alexander. Kwame played his first professional year of basketball last year overseas and has come back this summer looking to build an even bigger name for himself. This summer at the Drew League alone, his dunks have gone viral across all sports media outlets. He has been putting on a show at the Venice Beach League, securing the “Player of the Week” more than once. Last weekend he participated in the BET Experience Sprite Slam Dunk contest. Last night he got a chance go to head to head against Denver Nuggets star, Kenneth Faried. Both are known for their size and athletic ability (as well as their dreadlocks). I showed up to take pictures a little after the run had already started but as soon as I walked in, everyone was buzzing about Kwame dunking over Kenneth Faried. I didn’t get the pic, but our good friend Porterhouse LA was there last night and captured the action. Hey, at least Kenneth was playing defense and we know he’s caught his fair share of bodies with the dunks! Elliott Williams from the Philadelphia 76ers was also in the building scoring buckets! Overall it was a fun night, be sure to check out the photo gallery below!
