Drew League Week 09 – Sunday: Brandon Jennings scores 56, Toronto All-Stars join forces, Disney Stars courtside and more!

SSunday was a busy day at the Drew League. The morning started off with Jeff Remington scoring one of the biggest plays of the weekend – in fact it was so big, it made the Sports Center top 10! He has been one of the rising stars this summer, really making a name for himself. Because of Kevin Durant hosting a camp the previous day on the roof of the Drew League, rumors were spreading throughout that he would be playing that day. The line wrapped around the building to get inside. Although it felt like 100 degrees inside the gym, the stars made their way courtside checking out the games. Toronto Raptors stars Terrence Ross, Kyle Lowry and DeMar Derozan were watching the games until their game with La Familia. Disney stars Zendaya and Trevor Jackson were courtside snapping pictures with all of their fans. Dorell Wright made his…

Drew League Week 08 – Sunday: NBA stars ball out, including Paul George’s 360 windmill dunk!

SSunday’s action at the Drew League continued with even more surprises and action. It started out with No Shnacks taking a much needed win over The Game’s second team, Robinhood Project. In the past years, No Shnacks has had a variety of NBA players, including Darren Collison and Jamaal Franklin. No league players showed up for this game. Jordan Richard for No Shnacks had 6 really big blocks in the game. Keep an eye out for this team to go far this season. The biggest surprise for the crowd was the appearance of NBA All Star Paul George. Paul is no stranger to the Drew League – he was a regular participant two years ago. Paul joined Nick Young’s team, M.H.P. The two of them working together was an amazing combo and a blow out of the other team to say the least! The final score was 91-67. On a fast break, Paul George took the opportunity to do a 360 windmill slam dunk that brought the entire building to their feet applauding. It will be interesting to see how this team does against other teams coming up.

The excitement wasn’t over – The Game’s main team, La Familia, went up against Javale McGee’s #Juglife. Javale wasn’t able to play (nor did he show up) but he had his Denver Nuggets teammate Quincy Miller come join their team. La Familia is on a 4 game losing streak and they needed to pull out the big guns this time – The Game brought out NBA star Metta World Peace aka Ron Artest. Ron’s son also came along to play for the team. This was Quincy Miller’s first appearance in the Drew League and he definitely left that gym with every single person knowing his name. He was hitting acrobatic shots, blocking dunks and putting on a show. Ron Artest didn’t back down and held the lead for La Familia. The game ended in a close score but La Familia took the victory 82-74.

This was a great weekend to not only see NBA stars but for basketball in general. The rest of this summer will only continue to get better! Check out the photo galleries below:

Drew League Week 08 – Saturday: Brandon Jennings scores 57 points!

TThe week has finally come – NBA players are officially in free agency and are allowed to played in the summer leagues – The anticipation on Saturday to see who would show up was in full effect! NBA legend and Drew League regular, Baron Davis, started off the morning playing with Cheaters. NWA took on Cheaters 2 for an exciting match – including the NWA duo of Jonathan Gibson and Charles Garcia going against Cheaters 2 with big men Ryan Watkins and Kenny Lawson Jr. The came the biggest game of the day – The Clozers vs Sole Clinics. Austin Daye and Brandon Jennings teamed up with Marcus Williams for Clozers, while Derrick Williams and Stanley Johnson teamed up for Sole Clinics. It was a great matchup between the two teams. Brandon Jennings started hitting a lot of really crazy jumpers and it just continued…he was unstoppable. By the end of the game, Brandon finished with nearly 60 points! Also seeing Stanley Johnson go up against NBA guys is truly amazing – he is NBA ready right now! The Clozers took the win 107 – 84. Looking forward to seeing how the rest of the summer goes now with the mixture of NBA talent among the teams! Check out the photo gallery below

Matt Alonzo directs “Bigger Than Me” video for The Game

Recently I was on set taking behind the scenes pictures for The Game’s newest single, Bigger Than Me. The video was shot at a historical mansion located in South Los Angeles. The song itself speaks a lot without any visuals but the visuals that Matt added to the song made it even better. You’ll have to wait until the full video is released to see all of the surprises, but it includes everything from a VooDoo witch, wolves and chainsaws. See the sneak preview of the video below, along with my behind the scenes pictures!

Drew League Fashion: Week 01

I‘m introducing a new section to spice up the Drew League photography I have – I’ll be including posts every week displaying fashion around the Drew League – From Athletes, to staff and more!

This year the Drew League revealed a new design for their jerseys – Each team had the opportunity to chose a team color. The “home” jerseys say “Drew League” in the front, while the “away” jerseys say the team name. The Game’s team, La Familia, has a jersey set unique to any other team. So far we have only seen one color way – a black jersey with gold writing saying “La Familia”. Once their alternative jerseys are revealed, I’ll be sure to post a picture of those as well. Aside from the variety of jerseys, you can find a unique style of fashion, from head to toe. Sneakers are one of the biggest expressions at these games – seeing what “heat” these players will bring out is always a surprise.

My favorite mix is the return of the “Drew Crew” shirts. During the 2011 season, the drew league staff members would rock the “Drew Crew” shirts. This year, with Nike in the mix, they created a new design for these shirts for the staff to wear.

Because this is the first post, it will just be a teaser – next week we will come full force with even more content, so stay tuned!
