It is late August which means we are in the middle of summer workout video season. Unlike previous years, this summer will be remembered for the unusually high number of NBA stars training together and teaming up at Pro-Am games.
We have covered Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young’s summer closely. Over the past few weeks, the All-NBA point guard has worked out with the biggest names in basketball. But his new teammate Dejounte Murray may have just one-upped him.
On Saturday night, a mix of NBA veterans and top draft picks took over Jamal Crawford’s Pro-Am League, The CrawsOver. Unfortunately for fans, the game was canceled in the second quarter due to unsafe playing conditions. You can read a full recap here.
It is hard to believe, but arguably the greatest player of all time has played in two Pro-Am games this summer. Late Sunday night, we learned that Murray secretly squeezed in a workout with Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James following the exhibition game.
