The Nike Lebron James Skills Academy kicked off in Lebron’s hometown at the University of Akron back in July. In addition to continuing to stress the mission of the Academy (make this a once-in-a-lifetime overall experience for the nation’s best basketball players), introducing the staff (which is the best youth basketball camp staff in the world), the overall purpose of the academy was stressed several times – teach work ethic, the vital skills per position to compete in college and the NBA, and how to appreciate unselfishness and team play (learn to play effectively with 4 other guys). For the record, Nike and it’s mission and purpose at this Academy, represents what is right with youth/grassroots basketball – teaching kids how to work hard (many of them don’t know how), the fundamentals of the game (many of them aren’t being taught at their high schools), and how to play the game the way it supposed to be played (team concepts, no “And 1 Mixtape” crap!). Read the full recap from the academy at BallersNetwork and check out more pictures after the jump.
