HOOPS fans all over the world know Grayson “The Professor” Boucher for his lightning-quick moves and tricks on the court.
Now, basketball enthusiasts will get the rare chance of learning his special ballhandling skills up close in a day-long clinic dubbed as “Basketball for a Cause” today (Monday).
The streetball legend will be teaming up with two-time PBA champion import Justin Brownlee, former New York Knicks’ player Renaldo Balkman and ASEAN Basketball League team Alab Pilipinas in the sold-out basketball camp at the Chiang Kai Shek College. Former NBA All Star and newly retired Stephon Marbury will also be on hand to help train camp participants.
“I can’t wait to share my knowledge with everyone. The Philippines has always shown me love and it’s a privilege and honor for me to give back to the Filipino youth,” said Boucher whose last visit to the country was four years ago.
“Kids, class is now in session. Time to get handle ready!” added Boucher.
Organized by Team Reyes, Jersey Haven, and Global Hooper -- in partnership with SnippetMEdia, proceeds of “Basketball for a Cause” will be donated to Sen. Sonny Angara’s Youth Development Program.
