Often times people really don’t understand how the little things can have an impact on a child’s life. Basketball is a unique tool that opens many doors for young people to set the stage for their lives. Christian Popoola of EAT basketball is bringing a unique vibe to the city of Las Vegas.

PoPoola desires to help educate the grassroot basketball community to understand the Importance of Basketball development for the next generation of young basketball players. Co-Director of the event was James Feltus of the Las Vegas Punishers basketball program.

The Showcase got underway with a skills workout session that was put on by the legendary Jim Jones. This event will grow in time, when more people throughout the valley become aware of it. It was well-organized and the Showcase games we’re very fun to watch. The competitive level of our young people is something special. The participants in this event ranges from the ages of  8-13 years old. 

Anytime you have an opportunity to attend showcase events you are they’re looking for the next Diamond in the Desert. For this event one young man stood out among his peers. He’s a player to watch for in the future. 2022 6’2″ Joshua Jefferson is an 8th grader that is ahead of his time and with the right training he has the ability to be very special.
