Building Bridges with Basketball 2017

On Saturday, November 4, the Lakers kicked off their month-long Building Bridges with Basketball initiative at the UCLA Health Training Center. This program uses basketball as a way to unite members of the Los Angeles Police Department with the community. Each Saturday during the month of November, police officers and community members come together to engage in conversation and spend some time on the basketball court together. This week, Metta World Peace led the group in a dynamic discussion about labeling, respect and accountability. After the conversation, everyone participated in some 5-on-5 scrimmages.
