Although the NBA may be in the offseason and a lockout may be in full swing, there is plenty of summer basketball for fans to feast upon. From pro-am games, the Goodman-Drew League game and more, there is indeed enough basketball to pass the summer days.
One player who has been participating in summer basketball games has been San Antonio Spurs’ Gary Neal. Neal will be playing once again for Team Melo this month as they face Team Philly in Philadelphia.
Team Philly will include Hakim Warrick (Phoenix Suns), Markieff Morris (Phoenix Suns), Marcus Morris (Houston Rockets), Lou Williams (Sixers), Kyle Lowry (Houston Rockets), John Salmons (Sacramento Kings), Wayne Ellington (Minnesota Timberwolves), Jason Thompson (Sacramento Kings), former NBA player Flip Murray and Philly street ball legend Aaron “AO” Owens.
Team Melo, comprised of players from the Baltimore area, will include Anthony, Josh Selby (Memphis Grizzlies), Donte Greene (Sacramento Kings), Gary Neal (San Antonio Spurs), Eric Bledsoe (Los Angeles Clippers) and “more suprise (sp.) guests,”
Let’s hope all these summer games Neal has been participating in will pay off if and when the new Spurs’ season kick off.
