Imagine a talented group of high school basketball players who have been overlooked by college coaches. What if their chances of being recognized and having an opportunity to go to college is only a “jump shot” away?

About

American Ballers is a sports competition show that will travel throughout the United States in search of overlooked basketball talent to compete for a college scholarship. Boys ages 15-17 will compete in a weekend of exposure games, and drills while being evaluated by NBA players in their city.

Selected players from the exposure games will be invited to Orlando, Florida to participate in a tournament where players will be coached by former NBA All-Stars, and Hall of Famers. The winning team of the tournament will receive a college scholarship.

American Ballers not only showcases basketball talent, but will examine the off the court stories of the athletes, while also giving NBA players the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of aspiring athletes across the nation.
