Ball is Life hosts All American Highschool game

With the 2013-2014 basketball season coming to an end, there was one final showcase game held this past weekend in Long Beach, CA. Ball is Life held their 4th annual showcase game for Highschool Talent. Most people know of the Under Armour Elite 24, Adidas McDonalds All American and the Jordan Brand Classic. Although held throughout different dates during the season, those 3 showcase games have almost identical rosters. Ball is Life tries to go beyond that roster – to showcase the top talent that is sometimes overlooked and underrated. Although many of the players in this game have also played in the other major high school showcase games, there were some additional faces that were seen for the first time.

Unfortunately, Cliff Alexander, Jordan McLaughlin and Kelly Oubre were not able to play for various reason. Other than that, the players who did play certainly put on a great game. The halftime performance was by up-and-coming rapper, Casey Veggies. Overall the event was well put together and I look forward to seeing how it grows in years to come!

Glass Basketball Court in Downtown LA for Chris Paul Shoe Release

Jordan Brand has a reputation of creating nothing but the best. For the Chris Paul shoe release, they set up a see through box with a basketball court inside. The event went on throughout the week, but I headed over to support some of the High School players that were invited down to participate in some events. There were different booths set up all around the court for the kids in attendance to come and do different activities. Everyone made their way towards the bleachers as Chris Paul came out and was interviewed about the shoe. He took some questions from the audience and then a few lucky guests were invited to come inside the glass court and show off their ball handling skills. One one of the boys from the boys and girls club got a chance to play Chris Paul 1 on 1 as well! It was a beautiful display and a great overall event.
