A couple of the NBA’s biggest stars are not letting the end of the NBA lockout get in the way of some good football.
Kevin Durant and LeBron James will face off on the flag football gridiron Wednesday night as planned, reports Iran Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. And you can watch the game for free online.
Yes, at the very time that NBA players are being asked to sign insurance waivers to work at NBA facilities, the Miami Heat forward is following through on his challenge to Durant with a flag-football game Wednesday night in Akron.
The game starts somewhere between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern, depending on which site you check. You can watch live by just following this link.
Both LeBron and Durant had some football escapades this summer, which led to a little debate on twitter. Mix in a lockout and some egos and suddenly, you’ve got a game.
If you are looking for Heat president Pat Riley or Thunder GM Sam Presti during the game, they will be at a local church on their knees praying for the knees of their stars.
