State Fair to bring NBA experience this weekend


(SACRAMENTO) The NBA’s largest mobile basketball experience, NBA Nation presented by Sprint, will visit the 2014 California State Fair on July 11- 13, 2014. NBA Nation is 20,000 square feet of basketball action, including a full Center Court home to free interactive basketball activities, contests and clinics, and the opportunity to meet current NBA and WNBA players and legends.

Official tour ambassador, NBA Legend Darryl Dawkins, returns for the fifth consecutive year, traveling to each tour stop to meet fans, sign autographs and judge select competitions.

NBA Nation offers fun activities for fans of all ages, including:

Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown – The best amateur dunkers in each city will use their
creativity and basketball skills to perform their greatest dunks during the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown. A panel of judges, including Darryl Dawkins will select the best dunkers. One winner from each city will receive $2,500 and the opportunity to compete to win $10,000 in the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown Championship event at NBA All-Star 2015 in New York.

Sprint Ultimate Shot – Fans will have the chance to take their best shot on the Sprint 25’ Hoop. This one of a kind basket is elevated 25 feet off the ground, and is more than twice as high as a regulation NBA basket.

New! NBA Fan Combine – Allows fans to see how they stack up against different NBA players. The combine measures wingspan, standing reach, vertical jump and grip.

New! NBA Broadcast Booth – Make the call for an electrifying play, recreating game highlights to share with friends on social media.
