Dirk gets Dunked on: Drew League vs. Goodman League

Published on August 24, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Kosta Koufos was pretty good in his freshman year at Ohio State, but then he left for the NBA, and you haven’t heard from him since. Koufos is a native of Greece, and recently his Greece national team played Germany in a friendly exhibition game. Of course Germany is led by NBA champion and superstar Dirk Nowitzki.

During the game however Nowitzki gets owned by Koufos. Koufos puts a move on Nowitzki and dunks on him and gets the and one. Nowitzki isn’t the greatest leaper in the world, so this comes as no big deal. Of course everyone is making a big deal about this, but it’s not really a big deal because Nowitzki is not know for blocking shoots. Still it was a nice move from Koufos will he ever make it in the NBA?

The most news coming out about the NBA, is all the buzz about players playing in summer league games. Recently a game was played between players from the Goodman League (Washington D.C) and the players from the Drew League (Los Angeles) near Washington D.C. This game featured a lot of superstars NBA players.

The Goodman League won 135-134, Durant was the MVP scoring 44 points. Jennings led the Drew League with 38 points. Below are some videos from the game.
