Nba Africa Game Provides Opportunity On And Off The Court

PRETORIA – The third NBA Africa Game, to be staged at the Sun Arena in Pretoria on Saturday, has been billed an exhibition clash to grow the appetite for the game on the continent, but the likes of All Star Joel Embiid prove there is much more at stake.

The fixture pits Team Africa, made up of NBA players with roots on the continent, against Team World, consisting mostly of players from the United States.

It is an off-season initiative from the National Basketball Association (NBA) that will provide glitz and glamor on the court, but also gives 78 boys and girls from 29 countries on the continent the opportunity to train with top NBA players.
