Alley-oop passes, rim-rattling dunks and long range three-pointers dominated the exhibition game in front of a packed crowd. NBA athletes, both current and past, performed for the South Florida fans as the Old School faced off against the New School on the hardwood. The smiles painted on the faces of the stars and fans alike attested to the jovial environment at the American Airlines Arena. Players like Tim Hardaway, Dorell Wright, Mo Peterson, Samuel Dalembert, Brandon Bass and a slew of other notables gave the audience a show worth their money; Money that would go towards a greater cause than oneself.
The spotlight may constantly be shining on the faces of Zo and D. Wade, but it is their humility that guides that spotlight towards the faces of our youth - society's future - during the week of The Summer Groove. It's gestures of kindness like these that make Miami's two greatest NBA stars models for a better society.
