“Youth basketball is the future of basketball, but it is much more than that. I support Basketball for Development e.V. because I know that sports make young people better human beings who have more to share with others and who have more to give to others.
Basketball does not only promote healthy development of children, but it also conveys values such as friendship, solidarity and fair play. Basketball builds up team spirit, mutual respect and responsibility. Young basketball players learn to contribute to a better and fairer world.
I want every child to experience this feeling of satisfaction, support and unity across the globe. It is a true marvel that is only possible through our participation and passionate support.

Therefore I support Basketball for Development e.V. and I wish the organisation a lot of success.”
