Detroit Piston’s Point Guard Will Bynum is giving back these next two weeks. As most players do in the off season, Will Bynum is giving back by conducting his own basketball camp ” The Will Bynum Summer Youth Basketball Camp” in the city where he grew up, Chicago. Being a Chicago native myself, I was happy to hear that their was something for these kids to do to get them off the crime infested streets. During this 3 day camp Will will not only conduct basketball drills, but also educate the kids on anti- bullying, mentor and leadership skills as well as enjoying some improv comedy.

In addition to the basketball camp in Chicago, the Piston’s Point Guard will also take his camp to Tel Aviv, Israel August 7th-9th. After bringing the country a Championship Will gained the hearts of many fans. With all the love he has received he felt it was only right to bring the camp to the country that gave him a jump start to his NBA career. According to his press release Will had this to say about the camp going to Israel “I am enthused to come to Israel, the fans and community showed me so much love when I played there, I just had to come back and give back to all of them,” Bynum said.
