Damien Wilkins and his NBA friends will hoop it up at the Monster Slam Exhibition Game at Clark Atlanta University. The two-fold mission of this fast-paced pick-up-style game is to raise funds for the Boys & Girls Club of America, an organization that had a life-changing impact on Wilkins, while giving Atlanta fans a much needed dose of professional basketball during the lockout.
Wilkins is working to ensure the action-packed Monster Slam will include many extra treats for fans, like a halftime performance by Ludacris’ R&B group Untitled, contests and giveaways.
Participating players include Anthony Morrow (Nets), Chris Wilcox (Pistons), Derrick Favors (Jazz), James Harden (Thunder), Jarrett Jack (Hornets), Jeff Green (Celtics), Jeff Teague (Hawks), Joe Johnson (Hawks), Jonny Flynn (Rockets), Jordan Crawford (Wizards), Josh Smith (Hawks), Lou Williams (76er’s), Mike Beasley (Timberwolves), Rudy Gay (Grizzlies), Russell Westbrook (Thunder), Shannon Brown (Lakers), Trey Thompkins (Clippers) and more to be announced.
Tickets available now for purchase at www.damienwilkinsmonsterslam.eventbrite.com or the day of the game at the Clark Atlanta box office. Ticket prices are $5 for students, $10 for adults and $20 for VIP seating behind the bench.
