Capital Punishment Game – Goodman v. Drew


The scene at tip-off…DeMarcus Cousins jumping against JaVale McGee

The NBA lockout has forced the best players on the planet to play basketball this summer in odd places around America.  The Goodman League in Washington D.C. and the Drew League in L.A. are two of the perennial premier leagues, though.  This year, the competition within these leagues has risen to an unparalleled level.  And from their vast talents pools, a ‘rivalry’ of sorts has risen.  People began arguing which league full of NBA’ers is better.  The powers that be decided that this question should be answered on the hardwood…and these rosters were formed:

Goodman League (Washington, D.C.): Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, Washington’s John Wall, Denver’s Ty Lawson, Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins and Memphis’ Sam Young.

Drew League (Los Angeles): Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan, Oklahoma City’s James Harden, Golden State’s Dorell Wright, Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings, Washington’s JaVale McGee, the Clippers’ Craig Smith and Sacramento’s Pooh Jeter.

Tonight, the Goodman vs. Drew League aka the ‘Capital Punishment Game’ took place in D.C. Twitter/blog reports have been keeping track of the madness.  DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall looked great, supposedly.  Cousins owned McGee (video).  The game should be over now, but there were several ways to keep track. streamed the game for a pay-per-view price. @TeamCousins has been RT’ing several updates.  This blog keeps updating with new video from the game (including a sweet Cousins slam).  Twitter searching “capitalpunishment” will yield good results and/or enlightening death penalty discussion.


We’ll report the final score and stats later.  “Basketball Never Stops”
