THE Cempaka International School junior cagers were already in motion going through the warm-up session for almost an hour as they prepared to greet the special coaching crew at their school in Cheras recently.

Although they sweated it out under the watchful eyes of their coach Kan Kim Loon before their guests’ arrival from the local NBL Academy based in Klang, they did not show signs of fatigue in stepping up to tackle challenges in their workout.

In contrast, the group comprising more than 20 eager trainees raised the tempo in accepting the stimulating ways introduced by the academy’s head coach Toto Zamar and his assistant Nathaniel Salanga. The school captain Khong Dick Mun, said it was a great learning experience for them.

THE show homes were definitively an attraction for prospective buyers at the newly developed neighbourhood of Bandar Park-lands (Bandar Bukit Tinggi 3) in Klang.
But, the setting took an enlivening twist with renowned streetballer Grayson “The Professor’’ Boucher from the AND1 MixTape stable showing up at the People’s Park outdoor basketball court on Saturday.
Following an easier stint signing autographs and posing for photos with his fans at the Hoops Arena Indoor Basketball Court in Summit USJ a day earlier, the 26-year-old icon made his first appearance in displaying his exceptional skills to the spectators including the community around the area.

Vast potential in freestyling with a basketball

Friday July 23, 2010 By CHRISTINA LOW Photos by SIA HONG KIAU

WHETHER it is rapping, dancing or even performing tricks with a basketball in hand, freestyling is a definite attention grabber.
At one look, freestyling certainly looks easy as most of these moves are self composed and you need not have to be a good basketball player to excel in it.
However, getting the tricks right and having the patience for it might deter many from being part of this exciting sport said executive director of Ossia World of Golf Saw Swee Leong when met at the recent freestyling clinic at Hoops Arena in Summit USJ.
Spinning around: Mohd Razin spinning two basketballs using one finger.
“After years of organising basketball competitions, we saw there is a potential in freestyling but the youngsters who are interested in it are afraid and shy to come forward to show off their skills.
“Maybe they feel that they only know a handful of tricks and it will embarrass them if they are not as good as the rest,” said Saw.
