Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James plays in the Drew League for the first time since 2011 on Saturday afternoon.
James’ love for basketball goes well beyond just playing in the NBA for a paycheck. Both he and former teammate Kyrie Irving are expected to take part in the Drew League this offseason, going back to their roots and playing in front of thousands of fans.
LeBron was limited to just 56 appearances in the 2021-22 season, so maybe this bodes well for the future and part of his off-season training regimen.
The Drew League was formed in 1973, but NBA players have used it to keep fresh in the offseason since the 2011-12 lockout.
How to watch the Drew League
The Drew League is featured on the NBA app as it will be broadcasting James’ games this offseason. The games should also be streamed from the caffeine app.
James and Irving hope to work together with the Los Angeles Lakers next season, but Kyrie is still a member of the Brooklyn Nets. A trade between Russell Westbrook and Kyrie remains in play, but neither LA nor Brooklyn have agreed to the terms of that deal.
