NBA Nation

This is basketball country, and we call it NBA Nation… Whether you’re eight years old, or eighty; if you’re a face-painter for your favorite team or you just love the game, NBA Nation wants you!

NBA Nation is traveling coast-to-coast, bringing fans together at the NBA’s largest mobile basketball playground. Climb atop the 18-wheel, 53’ showtruck to the Lounge and catch the action on the courts below or relax on the deck and listen as NBA Nation’s own deejay, The Big Show DJ Dallas Green, spins the hottest new music. Dribble, pass and shoot the fastest through the Performance Challenge course and you could win a car*. Meet at Center Court to show off your best skills in a variety of shooting contests or participate in clinics with NBA Players & Legends. Come aboard the showtruck to watch the NBA’s 50 Greatest Plays on a 50” flat screen, play the latest NBA video games, or measure your height, arm span, hand & shoe size to life-size replicas of your favorite NBA Players.

Start your travels now and visit NBA Nation’s virtual basketball playground online at NBA.com/nation. Go “behind the scenes” with The Big Show DJ Dallas Green and MC Mike Garcia as they blog from the road, see who’s representing each city in the Performance Challenge Finals, and view photos of NBA Players & Legends, Mascots & Dance Teams as they give basketball tips, sign autographs, dance and live it up at NBA Nation.

Come dressed in your favorite team’s apparel and be prepared to pledge your allegiance to NBA Nation!
