The NBA Basketball School in Dubai enjoyed our 2nd Practice with the Legends Event on Friday, May 27th in Abu Dhabi. NBA Legends Paul Pierce and Robert Horry attended our practice – interacting with our players and giving advice. Pierce, who was recently named to the top 75 players of all time, was greeted by chants of ‘The Truth’ by our NBA School players. ‘This is just fantastic’, commented Pierce, ‘kids from 62 different countries, all in one gym working on their games. The program is very impressive.’ Horry, also known as ‘Big Shot Bob’ for his numerous clutch shots during his career, was equally impressed. ‘I loved seeing the energy and enthusiasm of the kids, they are fired up to play basketball.
“Kids took part in their regular practice sessions as the NBA Legends’ went from group to group to interact with them. This is the second Practice with the Legends’; our first event featured Clyde Drexler and Tony Parker. The Legends’ were in Abu Dhabi in preparation for the NBA Games that are being held there in October. Our NBA School families will receive purchase priority for the games.
What a tremendous experience for all that were involved!
