The two of them found that all of the kids were very eager to spend time with them, and that the UAE is starting to develop a much higher interest in basketball overall. At the day camp, the two pros gave lots of advice, tips, and support to the youngsters who were more than ecstatic to meet with the big international names. Even though there isn’t much basketball played in the country these days, many of the participants were able to recognize the players and are better able to follow the NBA now thanks to developments made with technology and social media. The clinic occurred every Friday in August up until the 28th of the month.
Rubio is originally from Barcelona, Spain, but was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2009 NBA Draft as the 5th overall pick.. He made a name for himself while he played basketball in the Spanish league and is thought to be the best European point guard ever. He was a 2011 Spanish League champion, 2010 Euroleague champion, and a three-time FIBA Young Player of the Year between 2007-2009.

Allred is going to use all of the challenges and struggles that he has endured in his life to show others that with persistence and hard work, even the most intense of disabilities can’t stop someone who is determined enough to get what they want.
The Salt Lake City native was born legally deaf and despite people expecting him to turn into a social introvert, Allred did just the opposite.

The 6’11 player began his professional career in a French League and bounced around to many different teams and also played in other overseas leagues in countries like Spain, Mexico, Italy and Puerto Rico. In addition to sports, Allred is also an author and had his biography published in 2009, titled “Longshot: The Adventures of a Deaf Fundamentalist Mormon Kid and His Journey to the NBA”. He is currently working on two more fiction novels that have not yet hit the shelves.
Allred is an inspiration not just to basketball players and athletes around the world, but to everyone who sees what he accomplished in his life despite not having functional hearing.
