On Tuesday, October 4th, 30 of our players were selected by the NBA to have the exclusive experience of practicing with the Milwaukee Bucks! Each player from the Bucks team was there and was responsible for running a station with a specific drill. All 30 kids travelled from station to station and had individual time with each player. The most popular station of course was with Giannis Antetokounmpo, the current #1 player in the world! Our kids LOVED interacting the friendly giant, and some even had the opportunity to score on him…Talk about a story to share with your friends the next day at school!!!
The NBA Basketball School was fortunate to be included in all the activities the NBA brought to the Middle East. Having the chance to practice with one of the most dominate teams in the league, and interact with the incredible NBA talent, was an experience that many of the kids proclaimed was the best thing that had ever happened to them. The joy they showed and the appreciation they expressed was fantastic. An event that will be something these kids remember for the rest of their lives!
