Tonight, live on Ustream, you can watch LeBron James vs. Kevin Durant in the “LeBron’s Flag Football Classic“. Kickoff is set for 8 PM EST tonight (November 30, 2011). It will be preceded by a charity event for LeBron’s Wheels for Education program.
LeBron, with the help from Dwayne Wade and Chris Paul, put out the following video promoting the event.
If you’re wondering how this event came to be, it started with with Kevin Durant playing an impromptu flag football game with a few Oklahoma State frat guys. By playing, we pretty much meant Durant pretty much dominated the game, throwing 4 touchdowns and accounting for 3 interceptions.
You can check out some of the action for yourself below:
Refusing to be shown up by his USA basketball teammate, LeBron James challenged Durant flag football game of his own:
@KDTrey5 Team KD35 vs Team King James do I hear? Flag football. I have the best of field here in Akron. Day game or under the lights
Durant accepted the challenge:
Thus the “LeBron’s Flag Football Classic” was born. It’s unclear if Dwayne Wade and Chris Paul will be participating in the event, but we wouldn’t be surprised.
