NBA Lockout Charity Basketball Games: Drew Gooden, Donte Greene Dealing With Competing Bay Area Games

Drew Gooden's Bay Area Make-A-Wish Charity Game is November 20 at the University of San Francisco.

The Sacramento Kings Donte Greene and Bay Area native Drew Gooden are each holding charity basketball games on November 20th in Northern California.

Northern California basketball fans may be without the NBA for a while, but that doesn't mean they can't catch some NBA action in the mean time. 

The Sacramento Kings Donte Greene and Bay Area native Drew Gooden are each hosting separate charity basketball games this fall, in fact, they're both on the same day, and neither one is planing on budging

@dontegreeneCOS representative was contacted by Drew Gooden's ppls hoping Greene would move #GSC off of Nov. 20. The answer was no.

Grenne's Goon Squad Classic (GSC) is set to jump off at the UC Davis Pavilion on November 20, as is Drew Gooden's Make-A-Wish Charity game at the University of San Francisco.   In all fairness, Greene's  was planned before Gooden's but now they have to battle each other for who is going to play in each of their events. 

Gooden tweeted some of the players he has slated to play in his event, such as Amare Stoudemire, Dorell Wright, Eric Gordon, Joakim Noah, Shawn Marion, Marquis Daniels, Nick Collison, and more. That more includes John Wall, a person who Greene has also listed as a player in his event. 

Uh-oh. Charity basketball game beef. 

Aside from Wall, Grenne's marquee name at his event was Kevin Durant, who is scheduled to play in an event in Houston the same day, so may not be able to play. As of now the event will consist of mostly Kings players, including Tyreke Evans and Jimmer Fredette, but still could grab some more names over the next week. 

Which one are you going to go to?
