NBA Nation and its Ambassador Darryl Dawkins, an NBA Legend, are traveling coast-to-coast this summer, bringing fans together at the NBA's largest mobile basketball playground with an entire nation to explore. Start by climbing atop the 18-wheel, 53' showtruck to the T-Mobile VIP Sky Deck fans can catch the action on the courts below, enjoy snacks and cold beverages, or relax on the deck and listen as NBA Nation's own deejay, The Big Show DJ Dallas Green, spins the hottest new music. Step inside the T-Mobile Prize Pod for the chance to win a T-Mobile G1, Nokia 5310 Xpress Music Phone, or other cool prizes. Then dribble, pass and shoot through the Kia Motors Performance Challenge course for the chance to win a new Kia Soul or Forte*. Join fellow fans at the T-Mobile myFaves Court or Kia Court to show off your best skills in a variety of contests or participate in clinics with NBA Players & Legends. Practice your best slam dunk on 8', 9' and 10' rims and if you think you have what it takes, compete in the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown for your chance to go to NBA All-Star 2010 in Dallas**. Show off your shooting skills from six different spots on the court in the Haier Shooting Stars competition. And finally, come aboard the showtruck to watch the NBA's 50 Greatest Plays on a 50" flat screen, play the latest NBA video games, or measure your height, arm span, hand & shoe size to life-size replicas of your favorite NBA Players.
