Africa has always been referred to as a sleeping giant when it comes to basketball. A shortage of resources and coaching has inhibited the continent’s untapped potential. But thanks to Luc Mbah a Moute’s success in the NBA, the native Cameroonian has been able to give back to his homeland by setting up basketball infrastructure back home that has produced Joel Embiid and Pascal Siakam.

In this episode of THE WAY WE BALL, we follow one prospect’s experience and success through these camps—Joel Embiid.
