Welcome to basketball country, a place called NBA Nation. Whether you’re eight years old, or eighty, and you love the game, NBA Nation presented by T-Mobile wants you!
NBA Nation, the League’s largest mobile basketball playground, is rolling from coast-to-coast this summer, stopping in a city near you. Greeting you at every stop will be Nation’s official Ambassador, NBA Legend Darryl Dawkins. Join fellow NBA Nation citizens at the T-Mobile 4G Half Court to show off your basketball skills in a variety of contests, or participate in hoop clinics on NBA Nation’s Center Court conducted by NBA Players and Legends. Conquer the Kia Motors Performance Challenge course as you dribble, pass and shoot your way towards a chance to win cool prizes. Show off your best slam dunk moves on Nation’s 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 secure a spot in the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown Finals to be held at a future NBA event**. Explore new territory by climbing atop the 18-wheel, 53’ showtruck to the T-Mobile VIP Sky Deck where you can catch the action on the courts below while you listen to local DJs spin the hottest new music. 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.
NBA Nation…It’s YOUR NBA!
NBA Nation presented by T-Mobile is also brought to you by Dribble to Stop Diabetes, Kia Motors and Sprite
