As part of the NBA Cares initiatives, 75 Special Olympics Unified participants got the chance to be All-Stars!

Organised in partnership with the Africa Region, Special Olympics South Africa's local athletes from in and around Johannesburg were so excited to meet the NBA players and be coached by the most prestigious league in the world. This clinic is part of the build up to the NBA Africa Game taking place on Saturday 5 August, and took place at the American International School of Johannesburg on Wednesday, 2 August.
