Ground Zero CEO Tim Anderson was selected to be a member of the prestigious coaching staff for Nike’s “The Trip.” This second annual event features 13 of the top prospects in the nation training in an incredibly competitive environment, leading up to a game against the Bahamas. In addition to Anderson, the coaching staff consisted of 5 Time NBA Champion/ LA Lakers Associate Head Coach Brian Shaw, NBA Champion Rasheed Wallace, and 1997 NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player Miles Simon.
The trip started with a visit to Washington DC and the White House, where the players met with key advisors while addressing leadership and community impact.
The Nike EYBL Elite team had no problem dismantling the Bahamas team coached by 1st Round NBA selection, Buddy Hield, and walked away with a 113-88 victory. Keep an eye out on these guys as you are bound to see many of them in the NBA soon!
