JOHANNESBURG 2012 – Basketball without Borders Africa took place between 30 August and 2 September 2012 in Johannesburg, South Africa for the 10th anniversary of the programme in Africa. Fifty eight players from 27 countries across Africa attended the camp, which was held at the King Edward School. NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo was joined by current players Thabo Sefolosha, Serge Ibaka, Luol Deng, Luc Mbah a Moute as well as other NBA players in serving as the coaches.Campers were divided into six teams and took part in daily clinics run by NBA coaches and which focused on basic fundamental drills. In the afternoons and evenings, the teams – each led by an NBA coach – competed in a tournament that spanned over the course of the four days. An All-Star Game was held on the final day, followed by an award ceremony and then a closing dinner for the camp’s participants. Off the court, players participated every day in a programme known as “Life-Skills Seminars” which serves to educate players on subjects such as the importance of leadership, teamwork, education, health, and sportsmanship. BWB also continued its community outreach programmes through the NBA Cares initiative and by hosting a Special Olympics Clinic, two very important elements of the camp.
