With the NBA lockout dampening excitement for the league, various street games have taken center stage in the offseason. A few weeks ago Kevin Durant made headlines when he dropped 66 points in a game at New York's Rucker Park. This week Kobe Bryant hit the game-winning shot in a game in Los Angeles. Baltimore even got in on the fun, as St. Frances hosted a Carmelo Anthony Pro-Am game featuring Durant, Josh Selby and Brandon Jennings.
Tomorrow the summer clashes continue, as all-star teams representing Washington's Goodman League and Los Angeles' Drew League will square off at Trinity University in a game billed as "Capital Punishment." The Washington crew has a distinct Baltimore feel, as Charm City natives Selby, Gary Neal and Donte Greene will suit up for the home squad. For complete rosters, see here.
General admission tickets are $25 and VIP seats are $60. For $4.99, fans can watch a live stream of the game on http://thebasketballchannel.net/
