Top talent from Asphalt Green’s Community Sports Leagues basketball teams came together for an all-star game on February 15. The players got a star-studded surprise when New York Knicks legend John Wallace showed up to run a clinic and watch the game.
John Wallace ran a two-hour clinic that featured a three-point contest, skills competition, and slam dunk contest. He also shared his experiences playing the NCAA and NBA. It was the first time an athlete of John Wallace’s caliber attended the game and a special treat for the kids in the league.
Players wrote an essay and were selected by coaches to play in the game. Two boys’ teams and two girls’ teams squared off against each other for a match featuring the best of the best. Who knows? Maybe the next NBA all-star will be one of the kids in our Community Sports League all-star game.
Asphalt Green’s Community Sports Leagues give middle school students from low-income neighborhoods the opportunity to participate in organized sports. Next up is the playoffs, which are sure to be thrilling with added wisdom from John Wallace.
You can meet John Wallace to at our upcoming charity game on March 22. Get tickets and meet New York Knicks legends.
