The Goodman, Melo and Drew Leagues are getting all the pub for good summer hoops featuring NBA players. But one hidden gem (or gym) to catch a number of NBA players getting in some run is at UCLA.

There’s a catch though: At least one student has to play on each team.

It’s kind of become a UCLA tradition with local stars popping into the student gym to play some hoops. No doubt the games are competitive, but it’s not the glitz and glamor of Rucker Park or one of the now-famous pro-am leagues.

Still, this summer Ron Artest, Russell Westbrook, Elton Brand and Andre Miller, among many others, have popped in to play some pickup with the Bruin student body. Pretty cool.
