Promising players Szeto Wai-kit and Chow Ka-kui have vowed to learn from NBA legend, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, at the adidas Superstar Camp, which opens in Shanghai today. Wai-kit, a Form Four student at CMA Secondary School, and Ka-kui, a fifth-former from Ying Wa College, have won several awards at both school and youth levels. Wai-kit was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and helped his team, Modern Youth Alliance Association, lift the adidas Streetball Challenge title earlier this month. Fifty of Asia's top teenage players, selected from seven countries and cities, will attend the camp. They will be coached by Abdul-Jabbar, as well as current NBA stars, Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks and Desmond Mason of the Milwaukee Bucks, during their week-long stint at Shanghai Sports Academy. Other guest coaches include German star Detlef Schrempf, former Utah Jazz general manager Scott Layden and Asian-American Daren Matsubara. Abdul-Jabbar, 57, is the NBA's all-time leading scorer (38,387 points), and boasts six championship medals and six MVP awards. He will conduct a course on psychology and attitude in preparing for games. These on-court lessons will also cover real-life situations, including 'trash-talk', such as saying something to distract or provoke the opponents, and media relations. Wai-kit, who is 1.95 metres tall, said he is particularly interested in the programme since he is not happy with his on-court mentality. 'I also want to learn Abdul-Jabber's famous 'sky-hook' and want to improve my slam dunk,' said the 17-year-old. 'It will be great exposure for both of us. We will be able to exchange ideas with other players from around the region and learn from each other. 'We can also polish our English and Putonghua on court.' Wai-kit said the camp would be a perfect warm-up for the Asian Streetball Challenge this summer. Ka-kui, also 17, is excited about his first overseas training camp. 'I want to learn as much as I can from the NBA stars. There are many areas that I need to improve on. I will be able to find out why other Asian players are physically stronger than us,' he said. Ka-kui led Ying Wa to the Jing Ying championship earlier this year. Outstanding participants in Shanghai will be invited to join their American counterparts at a superstar camp in Atlanta in July. Superstar camps have also been scheduled for Sao Paolo, Brazil, and Berlin, Germany, in August. The four camps will feature about 300 of the world's top youth players.
