In the press conference held in Western Bicutan Tenement on August 18, all three teams highlighted the role of the youth. Court Kingz shared that the kids they inspire keep them going. Filipino Alapag said he sees streetball as an opportunity for young athletes, especially those in provinces, to showcase their talent.  While basketball powerhouse China shares they are training kids and are planning to enjoin more to take up the sport.

During the conference, team captains Hot Sauce, More Free and Alapag left hand imprints which will rise up at the Tenement’s basketball court, just as Lebron James did during his Tenement visit.

The hard court action will be complemented by dope beats from DJ Buddha, DJ Rodney, Those Damn Nerds, Flavamatikz and DJ Aryan. No dull moment as local acts Abra, Loonie, Ron Henley, Quest, Andrew E., Gloc-9, and the Philippine All Stars will also pump up the crowd.

Global Hoops 2016 is organized by King Bally and will benefit the causes of Children’s Hour, Earth Day and Christian Mission Services Philippines.
