I decided to check out the Drew League today to get a chance to see Gilbert Arenas play live in person. The Drew League is celebrating their 40th anniversary this year and is by far the best summer pro am league in LA. Lots of local legends play in the league along with NBA stars as well. I haven't seen Agent Zero since his playing days for the Washington Wizards so it was nice to see him play live in person again.
What's cool about the Drew is that you can sit anywhere you want since they don't sell tickets to watch the games. It's first come first served and admission is free including parking. I decided to sit behind the bench near Nick Young who was coaching Gilbert Arenas' team.
I noticed that Austin Daye was coaching the opposing team. During halftime I had him sign a photo for me.
He signed on the darkest part of the photo for some reason. I may need to reprint this photo and get it resigned in the future with a silver pen. I figured he would sign near the floor where it is lighter so the blue sharpie would pop. Oh well.
Nick Young ended up signing two photos for me after the game.
Afterwards Gilbert Arenas signed my jersey for me along with a 11x14 photo as well. Here he is chatting with Mychal Thompson.
I wish I brought stuff for Mychal Thompson but I didn't expect him to be there to watch. All in all it was a great day to watch some summer hoops. I can't wait for the NBA season to start again next year.
