Walmart basketball schedule: 5 games to watch on Friday, February 16
WALMART – Walmart basketball games are set to begin Friday and kick off with an exhibition game against the Charlotte Hornets.
A total of 15,000 fans will have the opportunity to get inside the arena as they watch the Walmart Basketball Camp.
The Camp, designed by Nike, is a four-day event designed to teach students how to handle a game on a basketball court.
The camp, which will also include a team building event, has seen a huge response from kids across the country.
“We want our fans to come out and have a fun time and enjoy what they’re about to see,” Walmart chief marketing officer John McKeon said.
Walmarts basketball team is coached by legendary basketball coach Pat Riley and will be led by former college basketball player and current member of the Walton family, Jerry Walton.
It will be Walmart’s first basketball camp since it opened in 2019.
There will be a number of clinics that are designed to prepare players for the sport.
On Friday, March 1, the first session of the camp will be with Walmarts team from Australia.
This session will feature a scrimmage of the players, which the team will practice against.
Later in the day, the team of players will face off against another team from another country.
This game will be televised live by ESPN.
And then on Saturday, March 2, the Walmores will head to New York for a game against New York City’s Nets.
With the Hornets on a five-game losing streak, it will be the first time in more than a decade that the team has faced a team from the West Coast.
During the game, the fans will be treated to a live studio interview with the team and coach.
While the Hornets are currently in the second round of the NBA Playoffs, the Hornets have played two games in the Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers.
In total, Walmart has played 2,200 games at the WalMart.
At this point, the company has a lot of basketball talent in its store.
“It’s an exciting time for us because we’re at a time when there’s a lot more interest in basketball and our team is one of the most talented teams in the NBA,” McKeone said.
“Our focus is to help our fans enjoy their time in the store, whether they’re at the arena or just around the stadium.”
The Camp will run from 3:30pm on Friday and 5:30 pm on Saturday.
