Team USA continues at West Point

TTeam USA has been making their way across the United States before they head to the FIBA World Cup in Spain later this month. Their last stop in the US is New York. On Monday, the team made their way to West Point to visit with some of our troops. An open practice took place for everyone that came out. After the practice, team USA had the West Point Men’s and Women’s basketball players join them in competing in everything from 3-point contests to a very exciting game of knockout! Everyone was all smiles and overall had a good time!

Drew League Playoffs kick off with upsets

TThe Drew League playoffs officially kicked off last weekend. There were upsets left and right – teams that were expected to go through didn’t, while other teams that weren’t on the radar rose to the occasion. Saturday was filled with a lot of excitement.

Coming from the team USA game in Vegas the night before where Paul George had a horrible injury, it was understandable that NBA players might not want to continue playing immediately the next day. James Harden and DeMar DeRozan were on the sidelines checking out the action, as well as Dorell Wright. La Familia was missing DeMar, JR Smith and Ron Artest. It hurt them and they took the loss to the Jaguars. Next up was Nick Young’s team – he did play, but without Paul George or Gilbert Arenas, they too fell to Hank’s Houdini’s All-Stars. The next game was a classic rematch of the two teams responsible for the past 5 years of championships – Citi Team Blazers vs The Clozers (formerly LAUNFD) This was an extremely close game but it came down to the Blazers taking the win. Sunday was the next round of playoffs which knocked out most of the teams. The teams left that will compete for the championship are Cheaters 1 vs Houdini’s All-Stars and Cheaters 2 vs COA. You don’t want to miss the final games! It will be great basketball

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 04 – Saturday

This weekend I am out of town – I will be in San Antonio to shoot Game 2 of the NBA Finals (I’m super excited to be shooting my first NBA finals!) Despite being out of town, I made sure to have coverage of the Week 04 Drew League action that’s going on this weekend! Today included a variety of players, including Marcus Williams, Keion Bell, Stanley Johnson and Baron Davis. Next week the High school and College players will be joining the Drew League action. James Harden and DeMar DeRozan were also in the building to check out some of the games. Stay tuned for more exciting pictures this weekend. Thanks to Spencer Frank for filling in for me at the Drew.

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!
