     Players who are elite basketball talents in their city and town need to come and try out for the 2012 KBA Prodigy games. The concept came together by some of the NBA's greatest players wanting to give back to the community and mentor some of the elite middle school basketball talent in the country.

The event i...s FREE to all players and one parent who make the 12 player roster for the city in which they tryout (You can only tryout in one city). Cities that will be hosting teams in 2012 are Los Angeles, Bay Area, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio, Atlanta, D.C. Metro Area, Chicago, Charlotte, New Orleans, Memphis, Detroit, Cleveland, New York, and New Jersey. States that are close to these 16 try out cities can try out in the cities close to them.

Players who compete in the 2012 Prodigy Games will win money for their AAU Team (That have a 501c) and for their middle school. These games have no AAU affiliation and is a one time a year event. In addition the games will be watched by some of the top scouting services, and college coaches in the country. All games will be streamed live on the web for world wide viewing.

Teams will be coached by Ex-NBA players and are intended to bridge the gap between the players and the community. Ex-NBA Mentor coaches who will participate are but not limited to Mark Aguire, Penny Hardaway, George Gervin, Derrick Harper, Charles Oakley, AC Green, Moses Malone, Gary Peyton, Jalen Rose, Bernard King, Rick Mahorn to name a few.

(This should be a great event for all elite middle school players.Great experience for all involved .) NEP
