07:07 AM ET 07.30 | Based on talent alone, this past weekend's action wasn't merely an offseason shoot-around. Former NBA All-Star Baron Davis and rapper The Game made headlines when the latter tweeted that they agreed to a $50,000 bet on the outcome of Sunday's game at the Los Angeles Drew League. Davis' three-time reigning champion LAUNFD (pronounced L.A. Unified) took on The Game's Money Gang in a rematch of last season's championship contest. Davis declined to comment on the wager pregame, and whether or not money exchanged hands remains unknown. ... The Game put his contact list to good use. DeMar DeRozan, Stephen Jackson and Shannon Brown all suited up for Money Gang. [Metta World Peace] arrived just as the pregame buzzer sounded.

I'm glad they're using their money on something they enjoyed. Don't hate. They earned it. Spend it while you can because ultimately everything gets left behind.

The best name they could come up with was "Money Gang"?

Is this even legal for NBA players to join if betting is involve? Maybe they just shut down the Drew league because of this stupid article.

At least it's not being used at a Strip joint. Scratch that, That'll happen after the game.

I'm surprised Lord Stern and his apprentice haven't threatened suspensions...
