New York, NY - Big Apple Basketball invited 12 high school basketball players from the five boroughs to participate at the Foot Locker Adidas Glitch Court in Manhattan, last night.
The event is promoting the launch of the new James Harden sneaker, Harden Vol. 1, on Saturday.
The players wore Adidas apparel and did creative dunks on the court, while being videotaped by a camera crew, with an on-site DJ playing music. The event featured multiple screens and monitors for the players and spectators to view their dunks, while being entertained by an MC.
The idea for the sneaker was inspired by a letter Harden wrote to his mother when he was in the ninth grade, promising her that he would become a star.
