Looking for an indoor event to supplement the sun-drenched fun at Umojafest and the parade this weekend? If you’re a basketball fan, you might want to check out the Adonai Hood Classic at the Garfield gym. A promoter is bringing a group of NBA players who grew up in the Seattle Area back to play each other in a series of exhibition games.
The players are organized by team based on the high school they attended. Here’s the schedule:
Saturday at 5pm: Rainier Beach vs. O’Dea, with Nate Robinson and Jamal Crawford*
Saturday at 7pm: Garfield vs. Franklin, with Brandon Roy, Terrance Williams, and Tony Wroten Jr*.
Sunday at 4pm: Consolation Game
Sunday at 6pm: Slam Dunk Contest & 3-Point challenge, with Isaiah Thomas and Justin Dentmon*
Sunday at 7pm: Championship Game
Price is only $10 for adults and $5 for kids under 13. The Garfield High School gym is at 400 23rd Ave.
*- Note: Evidently not all players are 100% confirmed at this point
