The Battle Summer Showcase brings a loaded lineup to Akron, OH from July 2-4
Lebron “Bronny” James, Jr. headlines an impressive grassroots basketball event
AKRON, Ohio — As part of a high-octane event on July 2-4, LeBron "Bronny" James Jr., will take the court in the house Lebron James, Sr. built. St. Vincent St. Mary’s Lebron James Arena will be the site of the The Battle Basketball Summer Showcase - a three day event that will feature an impressive collection of travel basketball teams competing in Akron, OH.
Team Strive For Greatness, which was created by LeBron James, will be the featured team, led by Bronny and UCLA commit Amari Bailey - two 5-star players in their own right. The talent doesn’t stop there as players like Sencire Harris, Reed Sheppard, Gabe Cupps and Josiah Harris, will go head-to-head.
The showcase in Akron will be presented by Gold Level Sports & Entertainment tandem of former Cavalier and three-time NBA champion Danny Green as well as Gold Level CEO, Darren Duncan. Despite a 2020-2021 high school basketball season drastically affected by COVID-19, The Battle basketball series took high school hoops by storm - delivering one-of-a-kind matchups like the epic game between Lake Norman & Mikey Williams vs. Ammonia Bates & YPSI Prep.
“I started my professional career in Cleveland, so it’s awesome to be able to come back and put on an event like this for Northeast Ohio kids,” Green said.
The three day basketball showcase at St. Vincent-St. Mary will run from July 2-4.
