Throughout the summer Nike has been running the “RISE” campaign where basketball-loving kids were invited to participate by submitting a 30-second basketball-themed video.
LA Lakers Star Kobe Bryant is is hosting the next phaze of RISE at Nike new state-of-the-art basketball facility in Shanghai is appropriately dubbed the House of Mamba.
Nike’s LED Basketball Court is the first of its kind, which brings graphics, video and player-tracking to life. The court utilizes motion-tracking and reactive LED visualization to train, guide and challenge the RISE players through a variety of drills based on Bryant’s training and adapted specifically for the court.
Set to host 30 players representing 27 different cities–each of whom was selected last week by none other than LeBron James–for next leg of the campaign.
Stay tuned for more from the “RISE” campaign and the House of Mamba as the Black Mamba himself will cut the remaining 30 players down to just 10, each of whom will compete at the RISE Final held at Wukesong Basketball Park in Beijing on August 16.
The three winners from the final will then make their way to Barcelona to participate in the Nike World Basketball Festival from September 5 through September 7.
