The biggest basketball event to be considered after the NBA league is Jamal Crawford’s pro-am game, which takes place in Seattle, and many of the game’s brightest stars are playing in it. NBA players like Paolo Banchero, Dejounte Murray, Jayson Tatum, etc., were all seen playing in the pro-am games, but the talking point was NBA megastar LeBron James who suited in with the other stars too. Many people had gathered to see the legend in action as he is a crowd-puller.
On the other hand, WNBA’s Washington Mystics were wholly swept off their feet in the first round of the Playoffs by Seattle Storms, the only pro-basketball team from Seattle.

The video of both the players playing went viral instantly on Twitter. He was even seen guiding the WNBA players and adding to their game knowledge, and the female players listened keenly to the NBA great.
