World Basketball Festival 2012 Kicks Off in Washington, D.C.

World Basketball Festival 2012 Kicks Off in Washington, D.C.

Last night Nike's 2012 World Basketball Festival got underway in the nation's capital.

The Barry Farms neighborhood in Southeast Washington, D.C. has a longstanding reputation for its competitive basketball. On Friday, July 13, the legend grew with a competitive game between Team Nike (New York) versus Goodman League (Washington, D.C.), acting as a kickoff to the World Basketball Festival 2012 stop in Washington, D.C.  The hometown Goodman League pulled out a 113-110 victory over Team Nike.

With a surprise visit by hometown star Kevin Durant and his teammate James Harden under the Friday night lights, the Barry Farms based Goodman League is named after community activist George Goodman. Since it began in the 1970’s the league has featured current and former pro and collegiate stars.

To assist the Barry Farms neighborhood, Nike also unveiled a new premium court and stadium-style bleachers. The new Nike court features a resilient surface suitable for all-weather play that will be a centerpiece of the Barry Farms community for years to come.

World Basketball Festival 2012 celebrates the Washington, D.C. basketball community, while also visitinginternational locations including Paris, Barcelona and London. During the World Basketball Festival 2012 members of the USA Basketball Men’s and Women’s National Teams will train, compete and participate in youth skills clinics and community events.
