Liam and Bill like basketball. They also like the Knicks. The best player on the Knicks is Carmelo Anthony. Sure, this is all Greek to me, but to them…it’s gold. When they were offered the chance to attend the Camp Melo from Citi and ProCamps in NYC…the answer was an immediate and resounding YES!!!!

They went there ready to go, Carmelo jersey and all. Liam was equally excited when they gave him his camp uniform that he changed into in the locker rooms…big kid stuff. The camp was full of excitement and action, keeping the kids going strong the entire 3 1/2 hours. There was literally no room to get board. There were drills and games, and more drills. The coaches were great, each assigned to a small age group. It offered really great interaction, especially given how many kids were there. Here’s a video recapping the day:

There were a TON of excited and very eager kids. It’s so great to see! Liam loved it all…offense, defense, playing in the tournament, shooting right in front of his idol Carmelo. At some points it was like a one-on-one game. It was pretty crazy. We were worried it may be too intense for him, but he was dying for more. He couldn’t get enough. It was really great. Events like this make me all about Citi Private Pass all that it offers! It’s pretty amazing.
