The NBA Africa 2015 Game will take place on Saturday, August 1, at 9:00 AM eastern, in Johannesburg. Team Africa against Team World, in what could be an awesomely gifted game of basketball during the doldrums of the "NBA season." August 1 we get a basketball game? OK!
Team World will be coached by Brooklyn Nets' very own Lionel Hollins, while GM Billy King will also be on hand to take in the game. So, while there are no Nets players in the game, there's still a little rooting interest, I suppose.
The details are as follows:
When: August 1st at 9:00 AM EST
Where: ESPN or ESPN.com
