What happened to the 2020 ILLBALLERZ ALL-STAR GAME?
Going into the 2nd annual ILLBALLERZ ALL STAR GAME in 2020, we had momentum, we had the players and we had the stage set for one of the best high school all-star games in the country until COVID hit and shut us down.
Looking back on it, it is what is...the world got struck by a world-wide pandemic and we were forced to cancel the game. It's safe to say that we were pretty jacked with the 2020 All Star Selection and knew we were about to run one of the best graduating senior games in the country.
Since similar events like the McDonald's All American Games have been shut down in both 2020 and 2021, we are taking the pandemic in stride and realizing that things happen for a reason. With this time, ILLBALLERZ has had the opportunity to re-group and realize that our mission is now more important than ever.
While promoting high level basketball players is the cornerstone of our organization, we also have recognized that our original mission of helping others deal with both physical and mental challenges in basketball is more important today than ever.
We look forward to a big 2021 and 2022 year as we turn up the jets and help the world fall in love with basketball again.
