The second edition of “NBA Africa Game Time”  has tipped off on the NBA Africa YouTube channel. Every Wednesday, award winning South African music artist Sho Madjozi shares the most recent updates from around the NBA, revisits highlights of the week from the league’s #NBATogether  campaign, and interviews special guests from the world of sports and entertainment.

This week, Madjozi’s guest was the first Angolan drafted to the NBA, Atlanta Hawks center Bruno Fernando. Fernando recalled the historic 2019 NBA Draft, shared who has inspired him the most on a basketball court and talked about being a rookie in the NBA.

Launched in 2019, “NBA Africa Game Time” is a digital basketball and lifestyle show for NBA fans in Africa. During the NBA season hiatus, “NBA Africa Game Time” will be produced virtually with the guests joining in from around the world.

“The Last Dance” documentary series tipped off with episodes 1 and 2 on Monday, April 20 on Netflix across Africa. The highly anticipated 10-part series documenting Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls’ sixth championship season is returning with episodes 3 and 4 this Monday, April 27.

As part of the NBA Together initiative, former Bulls guard Steve Kerr  featured on “#NBATogether with Ernie Johnson” and former Bulls center Bill Wennington answered fans’ questions on Twitter Live.

The #BALTogether initiative featured on the Basketball Africa League’s social media platforms (@theBAL) this week: New York Liberty’s Amanda Zahui , Toronto Raptors Assistant Coach Patrick Mutombo and Philadelphia 76ers Player Development Specialist Remy Ndiaye .

Inspired by NBA Together, the Basketball Africa League’s #BALTogether is a social engagement campaign that features members of NBA Africa and BAL families engaging with fans across the continent through a series of PSAs and demonstrations of individual basketball skills.

Basketball Africa League President Amadou Gallo Fall joined NBA G League’s Capital City Go-Go General Manager Pops Mensah-Bonsu’s on BAL Instagram Live yesterday to speak about NBA’s work in Africa and the upcoming inaugural season of the Basketball Africa League.

 

Indiana Pacers’ Victor Oladipo joined Ros Gold-Onwude on “WYD?”  to talk about his Nigerian roots, African stars in the NBA, his African top five as well as a trip to Israel with his mother.

“Basketball was the love of my life, and it’s all I wanted to do, ever since I was like four years old…” – Victor Oladipo
