ROGLA, SLOVENIA – MAY 4: The five-day Jr. NBA World Championship Europe Camp concluded with a final day of competition, allowing coaches their final chance to evaluate the players before making a final decision on which players will represent Europe at the Jr. NBA World Championship.
The NBA Basketball Operations staff, joined by 12-year NBA veteran Vladimir Radmanović (Serbia), gave out awards to winning teams, while the FUN4U team handed out their own honors for off-court achievements such as the “cleanest room award.” They also offered some last words of encouragement, urging campers to take what they have learned here back to their countries and to stay in touch with their new friends. Radmanović concluded by saying “Best of luck, never give up and enjoy the journey!”
The afternoon session was focused on having fun and celebrating everyone’s progress and commitment throughout the week. Capping things off, campers and staff alike played one final game of knock-out, with the final coming down to a camper sinking the winning shot versus Radmanović to cheers from the group.
10 boys and 10 girls from this 47-player camp will advance to the Jr. NBA World Championship in the U.S. this August.
