About

American Ballers is a sports competition show that will travel to different cities throughout the United States in search of talented basketball players to compete for a chance to win a college scholarship. There will be a weekend of open run exposure games for boys ages 15-17 where each player will compete in drills, scrimmages, and will be evaluated by former NBA players in their regions.

Selected players for the open runs will be invited to Florida to participate in the American Ballers National Tournament where players will be drafted to one of ten teams coached by former NBA All-Stars, and Hall of Famers. Players will be exposed to guest coaches, and professionals from the community to learn about the importance of education, teamwork, healthy living, and life skills. Players will compete in tournament games with the winning team of the tournament receiving a scholarship towards their college education.

This show not only gives players of all backgrounds a platform to showcase their talents and receive opportunities, but will also give NBA players and organizations the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of aspiring athletes across the nation.
