In July 2013 the NBA and their global 3X program came to the UK and called on all local basketball players to show their skills.  With the NBA Global Games starting in October the NBA wanted to educate the UK on the game of basketball and get people excited for October and beyond.  First up was London.  Ducketts Common in North London welcomed players from all over London and NBA Star from the Atlanta Hawks, Al Horford.  The two day event featured 3v3 tournaments, skills challenges and a social media area for consumers to share the experience with the social world.  One of the hot topics was Face Team, a high flying trampoline basketball act from Budapest, Hungary (High flying is an understatement, they got hops!)

After London showed what they had, next up was Manchester.  With Oklahoma City Thunder star Serge Ibaka in attendance at Manchester City FC Etihad Stadium, Manchester was dressed to impress.  The two day event showcased some of Manchester’s best local talent including this gem (check out Serge Ibaka’s dance moves!).

London and Manchester held court, now we look forward to October.  Who’s got next?
