08:56 AM ET 09.20 | Drew-Goodman is back on, with more than a few headliners scheduled to appear, and the teams working on adding more. As for the biggest potential addition of all, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant hit a game-winner during an Aug. 16 Drew League scrimmage but isn't a formal member of the team. He was recruited to play for Drew in D.C., but he declined the invitation. [Said Drew League commissioner Dino Smiley:] "I haven't heard anything from Kobe. ... I know (Milwaukee Bucks guard) Brandon (Jennings) and a few of the other guys felt they really didn't want him to play. ... We would love to have him. If he wants to play, I'm sure he will, but we're not gonna go out and recruit him."

Who's Brandon Jennings to say Kobe can't play in the Drew? He should shut up and enjoy the fact that he'd be playing with/against a legend!

It is "like Mike" but not for the reason you think. Kobe is past it. He is still great, but he is no longer the Kobe of old and he can't run like the young guns anymore. These guys don't want to play in the half-court. The same thing happened to MJ when he came back. He wasn't worshiped by the players in the league at that time, and Kobe is in the same boat. i don't think Jennings was trying to "dis" Kobe, I think it's just a new day and there are a group of young players who think they are the here and now, and Kobe is the past.
