Inside Jordan: JBC 2012 – Day 1
JBC 2012 is underway in Charlotte, and the nation's top players have arrived
The legends of tomorrow arrived in Charlotte yesterday for the 11th annual Jordan Brand Classic. When they arrived, they were welcomed in the JBC “Gold Room” which featured this year’s uniforms and had the walls lined with photos of JBC alums who’ve since made a name for themselves in the pros.
Setting the tone for the week was the Hip Hop Preacher, Eric Thomas, who spoke on the importance of a relentless work ethic.
That evening, all of the players visited the ESPNU headquarters for a Signing Day Special where Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel announced their college decisions live on television.
We’ve got a lot of personality in the group this year. They’ll undoubtedly be putting on a show come gametime this Saturday night on ESPN.
