Juwan and Gallo participate in BWB

Mavericks forward Juwan Howard and director of scouting Amadou Gallo Fall are taking part in this year's Basketball Without Borders. BWB returns to Johannesburg for the sixth consecutive year since 2003 when it hosts the basketball camp Sep. 3-7 at the American International School of Johannesburg.

The African edition of the league’s global basketball development and community outreach program, unites top young basketball players to promote the sport and encourages positive social change in the areas of education, health and wellness.

“The NBA and its players are afforded a unique opportunity to use basketball as a forum and stress the values of our game to influence social change,” said NBA Commissioner David Stern. “Each Basketball without Borders camp unites a diverse group of people to initiate a global dialogue on important issues such as healthy living, education and HIV/AIDS awareness.”

Congo native Dikembe Mutombo of the Houston Rockets will once again lead a group of NBA players and team personnel including Shareef Abdur-Rahim (Sacramento Kings), Caron Butler (Washington Wizards), Nick Collison (Seattle SuperSonics), Juwan Howard (Dallas Mavericks), Thabo Sefolosha (Chicago Bulls) and Jennifer Azzi of the WNBA, as camp coaches and mentors. Lance Blanks (Cleveland Cavaliers), R.C. Buford (San Antonio Spurs), Amadou Gallo Fall (Dallas Mavericks) and Masai Ujiri (Toronto Raptors) will once again oversee as camp directors.
