RENOWNED basketball coach Ganon Baker, who has trained and worked with many NBA and WNBA stars, is set to return to Manila for a four-day camp this coming September.
Sponsored by Smart Breakdown Basketball Invitationals, the clinics will be held on September 2, 3, 9, and 10 at the Moro Lorenzo Sports center inside the Ateneo de Manila University in Loyola Heights, Quezon City.
Baker has worked with some of the world’s well-known cagers like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Maya Moore, Tamika Catchings, Skylar Diggins, and many more.
“I’ve been working out with kids and NBA players my entire professional basketball life,” said Baker in a video message. “I am coming to do a camp. You have the most passion of any community and I would love to see you there.”
Baker has taught the game across 36 countries, working with coaches and players on their game. In an article written by Dave Fairbank in the Daily Press (in the United States), he described Baker as “Tony Robbins (a life coach) with a jump shot, Dr. Phil with a handle. Maybe more accurately, he is the Johnny Appleseed of roundball, spreading the gospel of hoops and nurturing the game in gyms large and small.”
“Breakdown Basketball is very proud and excited to partner with one of the premier basketball skills trainers in the world in Mr. Ganon Baker,” said Smart Breakdown Basketball Invitationals Managing Partner Jay Adevoso.
“Ganon is amazed with the passion Filipinos have for the sport. So we hope that coaches and players everywhere take advantage of this opportunity.”
Smart Breakdown Basketball Invitationals is a grassroots basketball program with over 40 schools in Metro Manila participating.
