NBA Champion David West has reiterated the power of basketball to young players who participated at the Africa All Access Basketball Camp held at the University of Ghana Central Court in Ghana’s capital, Accra.
The Golden State Warriors Power Forward made the statement in the aftermath of the one day event which had over 80 players from the country participating in basketball drills, conditioning and nuances in the sport with NBA players including West and Phoenix Suns Forward TJ Warren.
Former Toronto Raptors Forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu now a San Antonio Spurs Scout, joined West and Warren in taking campers through lessons bordering on energy conservation skills and life issues on leadership and entrepreneurship.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com, the 2017 Champion said, “If you invest the time and energy into it, get the right type of attitude into it, you can go anywhere, basketball can take you anywhere. We just want to give these kids the same access that other kids around the world are getting”.
The entourage is expected to fly out of the country later this week.
