One of the more entertaining summer league games this offseason was the regional battle between the LA-based Drew League and the DC-based Goodman League. The Goodman League won that game 135-134 with Kevin Durant going for 44 points. Ever since the close finish, the L.A. players have been angling for a rematch. They felt as if they weren’t at full strength because some players did not travel to D.C. for the game. Now they’ll have their chance.
Tweets from both leagues say a rematch is set for October 9th in Los Angeles. The Drew League Twitter account specifies that the location will be Cal State Dominguez Hills.
Brandon Jennings, who has been one of the most active summer league players, also confirmed the news. Now he has to decide whether he’ll allow Kobe to play for Drew League team despite the Lakers guard not being an LA-native. If Jennings is able to get all the local stars to play in the game, they might not even need Kobe to play, but of course it could never hurt.
