For those of you looking forward to the second annual Goon Squad Classic charity game at the Cosumnes River College Gym near Sacramento, California on Friday, you probably got your tickets refunded since the event was cancelled.
The event was supposed to fund many local charities and feature such NBA stars as DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, and DeAndre Jordan were supposed to play in the game.
Why was it cancelled you may ask? We’ll let the folks at Bob’s Blitz inform you:
Sacramento Kings Donte Green tweeted that, “Just got word from NBA league office, due to stipulations in the new CBA the charity game has been canceled. Any players who play without Prior league approval face suspension and fines. We are saddened by this news and apologize for any inconvience this may cause. Refunds will be processed in a timely manner. To our charities we would like extend a personal apology and we will be looking for ways to fund raise in an effort to provide a donation.”
But now, CBS 13 in Sacramento reports that a source says “the league only stepped in after an unnamed team filed a complaint, presumably over injury concerns.”
Since the game was set to feature more than half of the Sacramento Kings roster, I think I know who the narc was.
