For players from the United States, the Nike Global Challenge is the final tournament in Nike’s series of Skills Academies. In June, these players will be invited to participate in positional skills camps around the country hosted by several NBA superstars including Deron Williams (PG), Kevin Durant (Wings) and Amare Stoudamire (Big Men).
