I'm all for basketball and sports, which promotes team work and encourages kids to yes, stay away from drugs and on the streets. It's great how the NBA uses its influence to promote the game and the sport, especially to the youth. I believe it will do a lot of good.

I wonder why I do not notice this in my country, who really loves basketball. My son is a varsity player for their school in basketball. He may learn more skills in a workshop like this.
