Tomorrow night, the second of who-knows-how-many-of-these-things-they'll-do pro-am exhibitions will be held. The Drew/Goodman league showdown happened about a week-and-a-half ago, and now LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul will team up against a team that includes our Jeff Green.
on August 30, in Baltimore at St. Frances Academy, a group from the Melo featuring Carmelo Anthony (duh), LeBron James, Chris Paul, Josh Selby, Gary Neal and Donte Greene. (Interesting twist: Selby, Neal and Greene all played for the Goodman in the Drew League showdown.) Although Goodman commissioner Miles Rawles says it's not officially a Goodman team, for his group it's Kevin Durant, former Thunder buddy Jeff Green, Brandon Jennings (who played for the Drew last week) and DeMarcus Cousins. John Wall was also rumored but it's unlikely he'll play, according to the Washington Post.
Not only does this exhibition mean nothing except a nice little highlights mix-tape, it will not help our perception of Jeff Green much.
If he's awesome, then that will fuel the "he couldn't do that here because he can't handle the pressure" comments. If he sucks, then that will fuel the "well, he sucks" comments.
This won't be streamed online, so we're going to have to wait for the YouTube highlights… which should be dropping mid-game anyway.
