Bryon Allen played along side Kevin Durant in Goodman Summer League

Bryon Allen's summer seems to be going well so far. He got a chance to play with Kevin Durant (pictured in bright yellow sneaks) in the Goodman League opener last night. Isaiah Tate was also noted as playing, but I'm not sure which team he was on. The annual Goodman League takes place in Barry Farms of Southeast DC, you might remember Lamar Butler playing in this back in 2007.  Kevin Durant stole the show by putting up 41 points after supposedly not touching a basketball for a week prior.

Of course I get excited about any Bryon Allen news because I think this kid will ultimately have a break out season this year. Going into next season the point guard position seems a bit up in the air.  Andre Cornelius is the easy answer but he didn't spend much time handling the ball in meaningful minutes last season. He averaged about the same amount of assists Mike Morrison did and next year's team needs a facilitator to get the ball to Ryan Pearson, Sherrod Wright, Mike Morrison, and hell even Johnny Williams. The strength of the team has shifted from last year and it will interesting to see how it's all sorted out. I'll be eager to see Allen's role on the team this season.

I would love to see Allen step up. Allen and Wright are going to be the differnce next year, are we top 20-25 or just top 3 in the CAA.

Do you not believe Durant didn't touch a basketball for a week? He just finished a grueling season. He could drop 40 on a bunch of college guys anytime he wanted.

Yea, I was able to watch some of that game.  Allen pulled a crossover, then dunked right over Durant!  It was pretty awesome...  NOT

Have you tried to play basketball games online, it is good practice on a rainy day.

That is not a good defensive stance. His arms should be straight and his hands(palms) should be in the air. Dawg I can tell you don't have a clue as to what is a good defensive stance.

It's called sarcasm. :) That is the most non-fundamental stance there is. It was so overly bad I thought everybody would catch the humor. As an ex AAU and high school basketball coach I kind of know what a defensive stance looks like.

My apology Taylormake703.  I thought you were serious and as you stated a non-fundamental stance.
