Impact Las Vegas Basketball League: Competitive Training Series

 


SHARE THIS PAGE


 








Updated Sept. 12, 2011

Impact Vegas BasketballJoe Abunassar and Impact Basketball, a leader in basketball training and development, will host an unprecedented training and competition series in Las Vegas, Sept 12-23, dubbed the Impact Basketball Competitive Training Series.

Player List

Over 60 NBA players will attend to train privately, then play competitive games that the public will be able to watch.

The first week of Impact Las Vegas games will be played Monday, September 12 through Thursday, September 15. The second week is Monday, September 19 through Friday, September 23.

The Impact basketball game times each day are scheduled to be 1:30pm, 3:30pm, 5:30pm and 7:30pm PT. Times may be subject to change.

Fans in the Las Vegas area are in luck: They'll be able to attend the games. A limited number of seats will be available at the Impact basketball arena ticket office. InsideHoops.com has heard, but not yet confirmed, that the games will cost $20 for a full-day, general admission ticket.

The arena address for the Impact Las Vegas basketball gym is 121 East Sunset Road. Their location is south and a bit east of the Las Vegas strip. It's very slightly southwest of McCarran International Airport.

“This will be an amazing two weeks for all of us NBA players who have been working and training hard all summer to get together and have a chance to really get after it on the court against some of the best players in the league. I have trained with Joe for fourteen years and Impact continues to be the world’s elite place to train and improve your game. This will be a great two weeks for everyone,” said Knicks point guard Chauncey Billups, one of the top NBA veterans who will play in the Vegas Impact series.

“Never before in the off-season have so many great players come together to train and play. I am thrilled to be able to provide our world-class training environment and system to so many great players,” said Joe Abunassar, founder of Impact Basketball.

“This will be an experience of a lifetime for our Impact Academy students; everything we do at Impact is built from our experiences of training great pros and all-stars over the past fifteen years. This will certainly enhance our entire program for all of our athletes,” continued Abunassar.

And now for some stuff that doesn't really matter: Lots of people are calling this the Las Vegas Impact basketball league. Or the Vegas NBA Lockout League. Or the Impact Basketball Competitive Training Series. There seem to be plenty of names. While the easy thing to do is simply say "Impact Las Vegas League," organizers note that this is NOT a league. InsideHoops.com believes it's due to language in NBA contracts. Organizers don't want to get the participating players in trouble with the NBA teams they're signed with. So, yeah. It's not a league. Call it the Impact Basketball Series. Or anything. All that matters is, it sounds pretty awesome and is going to help save basketball for about half of September. A basketball oasis in the desert.

Most of the players involved in the Impact games are NBA guys. Which is great. But bunches of participating players will unfortunately miss some of their scheduled games due to other engagements. So the actual Impact basketball roster is subject to change, and each day there could be a few players missing, and perhaps some surprise special guests ballin' in their place.

Some of the best players (in the eyes of InsideHoops.com) that will participate in the Impact basketball series include Stephen Curry, Zach Randolph, John Wall, Chauncey Billups, Al Harrington, Wesley Matthews, Stephen Jackson, Mo Williams, Hakim Warrick, Courtney Lee, Rashard Lewis, Dorell Wright, Corey Maggette, Nick Young, Kenyon Martin, Jerryd Bayless, Tony Allen, DeMar DeRozan and Jared Dudley.
