The ninth annual Ballislife All-American game is fast approaching. Here at Eastbay we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about one of the premier showcases of high school basketball talent in the nation.
This year’s game will take place on May 4 and feature some of the top recruits in the nation including USC commit Isaiah Mobley, Michigan State commit Rocket Watts, Jr. a couple of undecided 5 stars in Jaden McDaniels and Precious Achiuwa, and the top ranked point guard and second overall recruit of the 2019 class Cole Anthony, who recently committed to UNC. With all this skill, it’s sure to be a high-octane affair with plenty of scoring and highlight dunks. There will also be a dunk and three-point contest before the game which is sure to create some highlights and maybe get a couple of fans to fall out of their seats.
The jerseys this year are drawing on inspiration from the 1996 NBA All-Star Game in San Antonio. Everyone playing in the game will also be receiving a pair of the newest Crossover Culture shoes that they can choose to wear in the game.
The game will be played at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center with over 5,000 fans expected to attend. Taking place alongside the game will be HoopCon, which is a must attend for sneakerheads. This will be the first time HoopCon has collaborated with Ballislife.
