LOS ANGELES, September 12, 2014 — Recently Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Clippers teamed up with musician Snoop Dogg to host a celebrity flag football game to benefit Athletes Versus Cancer, a charity started by Barnes after his mother passed away from cancer. The event was held at Granada Hills Charter High School on September 7.
Snoop was the captain of one team and Barnes captained the other. Celebrity players included Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Glen Davis, Rodney Peete, Terrell Owens, Ray J, Gloria Govan-Barnes, and many more. Even Wiz Khalifa was spotted watching the game on the sidelines at this star-studded event. For those who are keeping tabs at home, Snoop’s team won.
