Through Basketball Without Borders (BWB) the next generation of NBA players are mentored through youth development, sports training and life skills. In honour of Madiba's centenary, who believed in the unifying power of sports, they hosted the 16th edition of BWB.
Team Africa's captain Joel Embiid is an alumnus of this program and gets to mentor the young basketball athletes. The atmosphere was infectious as laughing and having fun was also what made the camp awesome. Joel Embiid even danced with the young athletes, dancing is an important life skill of course.
The Team Africa and Team World players and delegation have jetted in. The legends from the women's league, WNBA also came through to coach and mentor the young athletes.
