The Atlanta Entertainment Basketball League yet again brought out the Atlanta community, star athletes, artist and celebrity taste makers to make an impact on one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods — Old Fourth Ward.
NBA Stars JJ Hickson, Derek Anderson(Retired), Music Exec Coach K, Rap Stars Trinidad James & Migos @ Atlanta Entertainment Basketball League
The league games are played at Central Park (400 Merritts Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30308) and some of the participants include NBA and streetball players, music artists and entertainment celebrities.
Rapper Trinidad James, Lou Williams of the Atlanta Hawks and The management machine behind artist (2 Chainz, Travis Porter) Street Execs all head their own teams in the league. One of Atlanta’s longtime music fixtures Coach K will be partnering with the league to assist in bringing even more big names out to the park each weekend. Red Bull and DTLR are at the head of the list of league sponsors.
AEBL represents the first basketball league here in Atlanta that has partnered with the worldwide-renowned EBC / Rucker Park Basketball League based out of New York City. The league has also joined forces with the non-profit organization, Positive American Youth to sponsor activities and giveaways — spearheading an initiative for families that attend the games, particularly those that live in the area.
Fusing the best parts of basketball and entertainment, AEBL will start a tradition of summer streetball for native Atlantans every weekend — Saturday and Sunday from 6 pm to 9 pm.
During games, there is live music via celebrity performances and sets from some of hip-hop’s best DJs.
This summer, AEBL plans on bringing even more heat to Atlanta summers, while giving the Old Fourth Ward community something to look forward to every weekend with friends and family.
