Chris Haines of Yahoo Sports has confirmed that LeBron James will return to the Drew League for the first time since 2011. The last time LeBron James played in the Drew League was in 2011 during the NBA lockout when many NBA players entered the tournament.
Famous NBA players like Kobe Bryant, James Harden, and many more have played in the Drew League, and James last played in 2011, Haynes said. Meanwhile, LeBron James will make his first appearance in the Drew League since the NBA blockade. This coming Saturday, LeBron James will play as a Drew League player for the first time in over a decade.
LeBron James just caused a shock in the NBA by announcing his return to the Drew League for the first time since 2011. Yahoo Sports NBA insider Chris Haynes broke the internet by revealing that LeBron James would return to the Drew League after 12 years on Saturday, July 16. With commercial rumors still swirling around Kyrie Irving, and the Los Angeles Times reported on Friday that Lakers stars were pushing to take him to Los Angeles, ESPN reported that both have plans to play at a professional club in Los Angeles on Saturday.
The fact that both James and Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving is playing in the Drew League is noteworthy, as there are currently rumors that the Los Angeles Lakers could be mistaken for Brooklyn Nets’ Irving. Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving playing a casual game in Los Angeles may not reveal anything about his NBA status, but it’s worth noting that he’s been implicated in several rumors that he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers Team”. LeBron James had an incredible 2021-22 NBA record, 19th in the league, but despite Russell Westbrook’s presence, his Los Angeles Lakers failed to qualify for the competition.
As James plays in the Drew League and prepares for next season, fellow Lakers star Russell Westbrook is looking for a new incarnation as he decides to part ways with longtime agent Tad Fucher. To further increase the anticipation, it looks like the King will face another current NBA star when he hits the field this weekend. While LeBron James’ training videos have gone viral, it may be necessary to dedicate some time to the game for the LBJ to stay in shape for a crucial season.
