Damn. Larry Brown Sports suggested that, since the ante has clearly been raised for the primetime matchup, a few NBA stars might even show up and pick sides. Starting to sound like Wrestlemania?
According to our friends at Jersey Chaser, James Harden and Kevin Durant are expected to be in LA doing some work for Nike this weekend, and they are expected to play on Davis’ team.
Money Gang features the emerging Pacer’s superstar Paul George, as well as The Game himself (apparently last year they had Metta World Peace and J.R. Smith, as well). Davis’ LAUNFD is lead by Marcus Williams of UCONN, which by comparison, probably could use the help of the former OKC tandem. Watch Game toss an oop to Demar Derozan from 30 feet out during last years league.
