Why do guys like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, DeMar DeRozan, James Harden, and others choose to play in The Drew League in the offseason.
The Drew League is a pro-am basketball league that takes place every summer in Los Angeles, and it’s considered by many to be the #1 pro-am league in the world.
The league was established in 1973 by Alvin Willis, an inner-city community worker, as a way to teach life lessons to young men and women of South Central LA through basketball. The league’s popularity has exploded over the last 50 years as talented college & NBA players started playing as a way to stay active during the off-season.
Pro-Am is not exclusive to Basketball, this can also be seen in Pickleball on the APP Tour, where amateurs and pro’s play in the same tournament. Ken Herman, founder of the APP explains “the whole vision is making sure everyone has an equal playing experience”
