Venice Beach League kicks off!

40th Anniversary of McDonald’s All American games

CChicago hosted the 40 year anniversary of the infamous McDonald’s All American games. With 2017 being one of the more impressive classes, I had to check out the games for the first time. I’ve been following a lot of these guys their entire high school careers so it was exciting to see how far they have come! With jaw dropping highlights from the West and East teams, the game was non stop excitement. The West won the game, with Michael Porter Jr. winning the MVP. Check out the photos from the game!

Venice Beach League kicks off!

Summer time in Los Angeles is full of basketball everywhere you look. The Drew League, JBL, Say-No Classic, Real Run and more. I’ve been covering some of the JBL and the Drew League so far but I would like to introduce the Venice Beach League pictures now being added! The Venice Beach League, also known as the VBL, takes place at the iconic basketball courts located in the heart of Venice Beach, CA. The games will be every Sunday starting at Noon. The majority of the basketball games in Los Angeles are indoor, but this is true street ball at its finest. Along with the players frequently seen throughout the other LA summer leagues, the VBL has been known to attract some of the coolest guests – from NBA stars to street ball legends. The list includes everyone from Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Dwayne Wade, The Bone Collector, Sick Wit It, G Smith, Zack Andrews and more! The pictures are courtesy of Emarie Marie!
