The game pits a selection of African players against another from the rest of the world.
‘‘It was a great game first of all. I thought it was a great show, Team Africa played very well, we played well too and they could have won, we could have won, it was a last possession game. But I am glad that at the end of the day our goal is to give a show to the fans”, said LA Clipper player, Danillo Gallinari.
The NBA is hoping to give African players an opportunity to play the big leagues.
“I am in a position where I can help a lot of people and make a big impact. I am thankful for the NBA putting me in this position to come and be the voice. I am excited for the future”, said Dallas Mavericks player, Harrison Barnes.
The 16th edition of Basketball Without Borders Africa was launched in Johannesburg, South Africa last Wednesday.
