The sport of basketball has held a firm place among America's most beloved pastimes ever since it spun off from the popular breakfast spread NBA Jam. Snag a sweet seat with this GrouponLive deal to see the Nike Hoop Summit at the Rose Garden. For $12, you get one ticket for reserved 100-level seating on Saturday, April 7, at 7 p.m. (a $25 value).
In its fifth year in Portland, the annual Nike Hoop Summit showcases up-and-coming talent from across the country and abroad. The USA Basketball Men's Junior National Select Team assembles the nation's top high-school seniors to take on the determined World Select Team, composed of the best basketballers aged 19 or younger from around the world. Past matchups have featured many current NBA superstars, such as Derrick Rose, Kevin Garnett, and John Wall, so that each annual event gives fans a glimpse of future luminaries still fresh from passing their dunking-license tests. Potential stars of tomorrow who are suiting up for the USA Basketball team include Nerlens Noel—ESPNU's No. 1 player nationally—two-time FIBA gold medalist Tony Parker, and Scout.com's top player, Shabazz Muhammad.
