The NBA lockout continues. But basketball doesn’t stop for David Stern.
Summer league play is still in full force. And the latest exhibition took place in our Brooklyn backyard.
Washington, D.C.’s famed Goodman League traveled north to face New York and some of Rucker Park’s best.
The program suggested some talented NBA stars would be in attendance.
Unfortunately, that didn’t exactly happen.
But when you sit underneath the basket and witness some of the greatest athletes in the world, there’s little to complain about.
An exciting game came down to the wire and some pressure-filled free throws. And for those that stayed till the end…an exciting dance routine.
But Kemba Walker and Gary Forbes were the lone NBA players for New York. No Artest, No Joakim Noah. And Durant couldn't make it. Lame.
What's better than one MC? Two! It was unclear whether they were working in unison or in spite of each other.
But Kemba led his team on a third-quarter comeback, closing the deficit to just two points entering the fourth quarter.
It didn't phase him. The Goodman League pulled out a nail-biter, 119-117. Kemba led all scorers with 30 points in the loss.
But the highlight of the night had to be this one-person dance-off. The players were more than enthused by the performance.
