The Goodman League topped the Drew League 135-134 in the highly anticipated pro-am showdown in Washington D.C. Saturday night. It came down to a controversial block/charge call that sent Kevin Durant to the free throw line where he calmly sank both to put the Goodman up one. Brandon Jennings missed a jumper with a few seconds left and Durant blocked James Harden's follow-up to seal the win.

All in all, a pretty fun night of pickup hoops during a time where any basketball at all is like manna from heaven.

And as you might expect, there were a bunch of quality plays. I mean, how could there not be in a game that featured Durant, Harden, Jennings, John Wall, Tyreke Evans, JaVale McGee, DeMar DeRozan and a couple streetball legends? So here are the top 10, compiled by Ball Is Life:

Top 10 plays from Goodman-Drew League showdown

Looks like a great street game. I would have loved to have seen this in person. It is nice to see a game where everyone is having fun and players are free to just show their game.

The NFL has not played enough to get my interest yet.

And MLB is almost set for the playoffs.

And unfortunately, the current talk of college football is about movers and cheaters.

So I like a little all-fun basketball game while NCAA and NBA hoops are off season.
