As an

NBA Ambassador

in Europe

I am committed to motivate youngsters to get involved in basketball and to inspire them to learn, play and enjoy the game. With a view to increase NBA’s presence in Greece and Europe, my main focus is to build bridges between the NBA and this part of the world through basketball-related activities for young athletes and fans.

Through NBA projects for youth we have an exciting opportunity to introduce basketball at its best into Greece, increase NBA’s fan base in this region and celebrate the game.

I am honoured to be part of NBA’s efforts to grow basketball internationally and I am thrilled by the prospect to work for that purpose.

Bringing the NBA experience in Greece. Our idea is to instill a lifelong passion about basketball in boys and girls by teaching them the fundamentals of the game facilitating them to develop their physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills.

Our philosophy is to encourage children in Greece to engage with basketball and adopt a healthy and sporty lifestyle. Our approach is to provide a platform where young athletes will gain the opportunity to acquire and develop life skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, character and leadership – all this through the fun of the game within a safe and positive environment.

Our purpose is to contribute to NBA’s efforts to promote and share basketball core values with youngsters and bring them closer to the game. Our vision is that together we can grow the game, build up an NBA-oriented basketball culture and create strong links between NBA and future generations of basketball fans and athletes in Greece.
