Former NBA star Baron Davis and West Coast hip hop rapper, The Game wagered a meager $50,000 on a basketball game this past Sunday sponsored by the DREW LEAGUE. Baron Davis had to feel pretty confident about his chances as his LAUNFD team, featured NBA superstar Kevin Durant. The Game’s Money Gang team wasn’t too shabby featuring a few NBA players of his own. Metta World Peace and DeMar DeRozan to even out the playing field.
Kevin Durant dazzles the crowd scoring a game-high 35 points and 17 rebounds; but with the game on the line and the LAUNFD down a bucket, Durant’s three-point attempt was presumably short and Money Gang held on to win the 92-90.

On a side note the, Metta score a team high 29 points and 13 rebounds. The fans of the Drew League got a treat as they filled the gym to capacity. Oh by the way, since Durant was responsible for the missing the biggest shot of the summer, do you think he will fork over the $50,000, Baron Davis now owes?

“They’ve got a good team but they never had that goon — that defensive goon last season,’’ Daniel Artest said. “Someone that’s not afraid. If Ron was on the team, they would have gotten past the Pacers.’’
