James Harden Drew League-Goodman LeagueOklahoma City Thunder sharpshooter James Harden took the court on behalf of Los Angeles' famed Drew League on Sunday night. The LA native attended high school at Artesia High School, located only eight miles from Cal State Long Beach's Walter Pyramid. The third overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft (out of Arizona State) averaged 12.2 PPG and 3.1 RPG during OKC's breakout season of 2010-2011, which ended with a Western Conference Finals loss to the eventual world champion Dallas Mavericks. Take a look at original video of Harden's night back in his hometown. The man known for his impressive beard scored 48 points in his team's seven point victory.
