Tomorrow marks the opening day of the 40th season of the Drew League. The Drew is a summer basketball league that brings 28 teams to compete for a championship over the course of the Summer. Players include standouts in high school, college and even some pros.
Games are on Saturday and Sunday with seven games each day. In mid-June, NCAA athletes will be able to participate, and then after July 1, the energy will skyrocket, as NBA athletes will begin playing every weekend. Some NBA players that may participate include DeMar DeRozan, Paul George, JR Smith, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and James Harden. I’m definitely going to check out a day of b-ball over the summer.
_ Location: King-Drew Magnet High School.
_ Address: 1601 E 120th St Los Angeles, CA 90059.

Here are the uniforms that will be used by the teams provided by Nike.
Check out this video from the 2010 season…you may recognize a few of the players.
