NBA Africa came closer to fulfilling its dream of hosting the 2016 Basketball without Borders (BWB) in as many African countries as possible with the tip off of the 15th edition of program, which was hosted in Angola for the first time at the Pavilhao Multiusos do Kilamba in Luanda.

The day started off with life-skills sessions, followed by an official launch press conference.

The camp enjoyed the support of the Angolan Basketball Federation (Federacao Angolana de Basquetebol) and the Angola Ministry of Youth and Sports and the press conference was attended by Angolan Minister of Youth and Sports Goncalves Muandumba and Paulo Madeira, President of Angolan Basketball Federation.

After the formal proceedings, the campers took to the court and were taken through different drills and evaluated by NBA players, legends and as well as coaches and technical staff.

This year's camp is being attended by top 87 campers comprising 64 boys and 23 girls from 26 African countries.

The campers received mentorship from amongst others, NBA legend, hall of famer and global ambassador Dikembe Mutombo and NBA players Eric Bledsoe of the Phoenix Suns, Luc Mbah a Moute from the LA Clippers and a BWB Africa camper in 2003, Salah Mejri from the Dallas Mavericks and Cody Zeller from the Charlotte Hornets.

The day was wrapped up with a spectacular NBA Cares Jr. NBA Clinic presented by Ford, UNICEF and Hoops 4 Hope which was attended by 100 boys and girls from two schools in the Luanda area of Angola.

'It is a great honour to be hosting Basketball without Borders here in Angola for the first time. Angola is a great basketball nation and this is contributing to our efforts of growing the NBA's footprint across Africa.

'We currently have Junior NBA leagues in 12 African countries looking at having it in every African country in the next five years' - Amadou Gallo Fall, NBA Vice President and Managing Director for Africa.

'There is great basketball talent across Africa and it is great to see these boys and girls that are participating in this great initiative and I wish them all the best' - Dikembe Mutombo, NBA legend, hall of famer and global ambassador.

'It is great to see all these boys and girls at BWB. The talent I have seen here is great and encouraging that Africa has basketball potential which spans the entire continent' Salah Mejri of Dallas Mavericks and Tunisia.
