The National Basketball Association (NBA) today announced the rosters of the 32 teams that will compete at the Jr. NBA World Championship, a first-of-its kind global youth basketball tournament for the top 13- and 14-year-old boys and girls teams from around the world. The competition will take place Aug. 7-12 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla. Three-time NBA Champion and Jr. NBA World Championship Global Ambassador Dwyane Wade, 2018 NBA All-Star Andre Drummond, eight-time NBA All-Star Vince Carter, Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez, 2018 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Grant Hill and WNBA Legends Tamika Catchings, Swin Cash and Jennifer Azzi will join the 317 boys and girls from 35 countries at the first Jr. NBA World Championship.
Goran Dragic on Udonis Haslem continued: “A lot of guys in this locker room need leadership like UD, especially Hassan [Whiteside]. I think UD can provide that. He’s there where usually some guys would not be, in the toughest moments, when you need something, he’s there. That’s why everybody loves him. I played with a lot of veteran guys who had successful careers — like UD, Steve Nash, Grant Hill, Amare Stoudemire — [and Haslem] is number one in my books as a player and a leader and a friend.”
Hill, however, did admit that tanking doesn’t always work for teams. The Philadelphia 76ers, who pulled off one of the more obvious tank jobs in the NBA for several years, are currently enjoying an exciting revival and are led by top draft picks in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. “I mean, the Sixers, look, they’re in a great position, and it’s been a long, arduous process for them and their organization and their fan base,” Hill said. “We can see now that the players they have drafted who have been just fantastic in [Dario] Saric and Embiid and Simmons. Those kids are talented, they have a lot of runway in front of them, and they’ll be good for a long time.
The angst extended to the defensive side, too. Porter didn’t just arrive with new principles. He ran the veterans through exhausting fundamental drills — fire feet, blow the whistle, dive after the fake loose ball. “Hoosiers”-type stuff, things that’ll infuriate established, aging veterans like Nash, Grant Hill and Shaq during the middle of a tiring season. Raja Bell and Boris Diaw, two of the more unhappy and vocal voices, were shipped out in December for Jason Richardson. But that didn’t slow the brewing player revolt as the perennial West contender puttered through a disappointing season.
