Why should this surprise anyone?
You were able to watch right here on LakerNation.com (via UStream) as Kobe Bryant showed up to play some ball at the Drew League today.
Just to set the stage here, the Drew League is a Professional Amateur basketball league based out of South Central Los Angeles. Both Lebron James and Kevin Durant have played at “The Drew” this summer.
Other participants on Tuesday included Ed Davis and DeMar DeRozan from the Toronto Raptors, and Minnesota Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams.
James Harden from the Oklahoma City Thunder was also in the building, and he was the man matched up with the Black Mamba with seconds left to play.
With the score tied 137-137 Bryant had the ball, and you probably know what happens next.
