Pascal Siakam, Cameroonian NBA superstar

Forty-three children have been selected to participate in an ongoing basketball  training tournament taking place in Douala, Cameroon organised by NBA superstar, Pascal Siakam.

The training tournament is the first of its kind for children under the age of 16, organised by the 24-year-old 2019 NBA champion.

He is expected to motivate the teenagers and advise them on basketball technics.

Talking to the participants in the ongoing training competition, he said hard work pays forever. “Seeing kids happy, makes me happy,” he said.

His focus is to see the upcoming generation grow in the game.

“Siakam being the first Cameroonian and third African in the history of NBA championship to win the prestigious trophy with his team is an inspiration to Africa and not only Cameroon,” said Amadou Gallo, Managing Director of NBA Africa.

According to one of the trainees, this camp does not only help them chase their dreams of becoming professional basketball players but also teaches them to be respectful, composed and disciplined.

Mr Pascal added that the training is a way of giving back to his community.

He intends to transform the training Camp into an academy in future.
