BBasketball is a year round game. Even with the NBA season ends, the summer brings just as much action. With the summer officially over, there are many basketball lovers that keep the games going. Supermodel Don Benjamin hosted his second annual celebrity basketball game in Los Angeles, CA. The game featured street ball legends Bone Collector and Sik Wit It, Harlem Globe Trotters Tammy Brawner and Chris Staples, actors Malcolm D Kelley, Najee De-Tiege and many more!
