NBA Players Competing During Lockout
The NBA may be in the midst of a lockout but it hasn't kept many of its big-name players off the court. Here are just some of the highlights of NBA players (and a coach!) on the court in various pro-am and streetball leagues this summer.
Kevin Durant at Rucker Park

Kevin Durant has seemingly become the ring-leader among NBA players in streetball leagues this summer. His appeared at almost all the big courts, from L.A.'s famed Drew League, to D.C. Goodman League and even New York City's legendary Rucker Park, where he casually dropped 66 points. Watch him drain five threes in a row.
