The Drew League, a pro-am summer basketball league in Los Angeles, put on a star-studded lineup on Saturday, as LeBron James and DeMar Derozan joined forces to put on a show in front of a packed gym at the King / Drew Magnet High School.
LeBron, in his first Drew League appearance since 2011, topped with 42 points and 16 rebounds, while Los Angeles native Derozan added 30 points and 14 rebounds en route to a 104-102 win.
LeBron’s performance comes 11 years after making his Drew League debut with a showcase of 33 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds.
The Los Angeles Laker took to Twitter after the game to express his excitement about performing in front of the Los Angeles crowd, which included guests such as Draymond Green and Quavo.
“Thank you @DrewLeague,” he wrote. “I loved the energy from start to finish! Everything for the city of [angel emoji].”
Kyrie Irving was scheduled to play in the game that took place before LeBron’s, but the Brooklyn Nets point guard didn’t show up.
Longtime Drew League commissioner Dino Smiley told ESPN: “We still have a few games left today, then six tomorrow, so we’ll see.” Smiley added that Irving’s expected appearance “looked like a safe bet, but I don’t know what happened.”
