The 2nd ever NBA Africa Game returned to Johannesburg, South Africa on August 5, 2017. The event was preceded by a week full of basketball camps, community service, and events in which the NBA lends its resources to various communities. I was privileged to attend the Welcome Reception and the NBA Africa Game 2017.
It's really a big deal for the sport as the NBA continues to formalize its operations and expand its viewership on the continent African continent. Econet/Kwese, led by Strive Masiyiwa announced their partnership with the NBA in 2016. They've become the official broadcaster for the NBA in sub-Saharan Africa and it's the largest deal the NBA has done on the continent.
