It has been a while since NBA fans seen some basketball action. Sure there was the Summer League and Team USA minicamp but now it seems the NBA offseason doldrums are in full effect.
Luckily, a few players are participating in some pick-up games and summer leagues such as the famed Drew League.
Thunder's Kevin Durant is playing at the Drew League and recently dropped 35 points and 17 rebounds including a rim-rocking slam which got the fans in attendance off their seats (h/t The NBA Passionista). I guess "defense" isn't stressed at the Drew League.

While most of you were probably relaxing over the weekend, Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant was putting work in the Drew League.
On Saturday, Durant’s LAUFND team faced off against the Money Gang and one of the notable KD highlights from the action can be seen in the below video clip.
Watch as Durant drives the lane and throws down an impressive one-handed slam dunk:
The NBA owners have voted to reimburse the Oklahoma City Thunder a sum of $8 million for the gap between Kevin Durant's contract under the old collective bargaining agreement and the new on that was agreed upon in December of 2011.
Durant's deal became a super-max due to his presence on All-NBA teams.
The $8 million is half of the gap between the two contracts for Durant.
Kevin Durant showed up with his new agent, Jay Z, to the the Dodgers vs Yankees game in LA Tuesday night where Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and James Harden were also in attendance. However, he didn’t receive the warmest welcome as the Thunder star got booed when shown on the jumbotron.

In terms of NBA players that you would want taking the last shot, I’m pretty sure that most of you would agree that Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant would be one of those people.
With time running down during Saturday’s Drew League game, Durant’s team was trailing by two points and Kevin was given the opportunity to hit the game-winning shot.
