Rim Rockers Rockin' in a Free World
Acrobatic slam dunk team performs at NBA Jam Fest in Abu Dhabi
The Rim Rockers, the Milwaukee Bucks acrobatic slam dunk team, are in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, representing the Bucks at NBA Jam Fest 2010. NBA Jam Fest is a three-day festival (Dec. 2-4), presented by the NBA and FLASH Entertainment, designed to bring interactive basketball activities to fans in Abu Dhabi.
Over the course of the festival, which is the Middle East's first ever NBA Jam Fest, the Rim Rockers will perform two shows and participate in several meet and greets, giving their fans overseas plenty of opportunities to receive autographs, take photos and interact with the high-flying team. Additional representatives from the NBA are also on hand to interact with fans, conduct basketball skills clinics and sign autographs throughout the festival. This year, the Rim Rockers, Hall-of-Famer Hakeem Olajuwon and the Knicks City Dancers highlight the event, which takes place at the FLASH Forum on Yas Island and is free of charge to all attendees.
The Rim Rockers perform at Bucks home games, in the community, and all around the world with their innovative style and trampoline dunking. They have performed at an NBA All-Star Game and have appeared with the Bucks at the NBA China Games in Beijing and Guangzhou in the 2008 preseason. The Rim Rockers high-energy performances are geared to amaze and excite crowds every time they take to the air. With flips, 360's, crazy pass combinations, and huge hang time, the Rim Rockers have earned the distinction as a two-time Best Entertainment honoree by Gameops.com and are Guinness World Record Holders.
