Jan 17, 2018: NBA Basketball School, Kevin Martin Master Class
The visit of former NBA star, Kevin Martin to Apeejay School, Sheikh Sarai on Jan 17, 2018, had all the ingredients for an action filled the evening. A one-hour masterclass session with the star himself assured the students of some valuable experience that would last a lifetime. With a total of thirty-six students in attendance, the session was tailored by Joel Yoba (Technical Director, NBA Basketball School in India) and further assisted by four accomplished basketball coaches.
Kevin Martin was indeed the star of the event, with the students eagerly cherishing every moment of their interaction with him. Few of the older students proved to be fortunate enough to be able to have a one-on-one session with the star. The younger students were completely mesmerized by the high fives that they were received from the star himself at the end of their drills. A question and answer session together with a photo and autograph opportunity with the former Spurs star led the curtains down on the much-awaited evening.
An idol to many all over the world, Kevin Martin left a lasting impression on the minds of the budding players. His journey to the very top of the sport is an inspiration to all future basketball players.
