Young NBA fans will watch this weekend’s All-Star game to see their favorite players pick and move, shoot and dunk. Afterwards, those young aspiring players will be motivated to get in on a pick-up game of street ball. For some, their home-court isn’t in the best shape. But that’s changing, in Charlotte, home of the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
AND1 is unveiling a week-long street art project that beautified Cordelia Park for hundreds of youth basketball players who frequent the courts. Over a span of three days, a group of street artists used hundreds of gallons of paint and a drone to paint a court-sized mural on the pavement. The project is ready to be unveiled.
On Saturday (11am-3pm), city and county officials, along with NBA All-Star Kevin Garnett and AND1 General Manager John Scipio will re-dedicate the basketball court at Cordelia park to the community.
Cordelia Park is one of three parks that have been renovated across the country by AND1 as a part of the “Paint the Park” Initiative.
