BWB Africa Opens Up In Johannesburg
Day one of the ninth installment of Basketball without Borders Africa tipped-off today with an opening press conference at King Edward VII School in Johannesburg, South Africa. Under cloudless blue skies, Amadou Fall, NBA Vice President of Development - Africa, greeted the guests, campers, NBA legends and coaches, and media and set the tone for an exciting first day of camp.
The highlight of the afternoon was a Special Olympics basketball clinic for 60 athletes from around Johannesburg. The NBA and WNBA legends and coaches ran the athletes through four stations teaching game fundamentals like dribbling, passing, defense and layups. A little friendly competition was on order in a four team relay race before the group gathered for a final photo and an exchange of pins.
