Larry Nance Jr. and kids

(Independence) - Forty teens from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland had a unique opportunity to discuss important topics such as dreams, goals, leadership and togetherness on Wednesday.  

The Cavaliers hosted a special Basketball and History Town Hall for the students at Cleveland Clinic Courts as part of the team’s annual Black Heritage Celebration.  

The teens broke into groups, they watched emotion-evoking and thought-provoking movie clips to spur conversations. 

The discussions will be led by players Jordan Clarkson, George Hill and Larry Nance, Jr., as well as head coach Tyronn Lue and associate head coach Larry Drew and legends Austin Carr, Jim Chones, Larry Nance, Sr. and Campy Russell.  

The intention of the Town Hall was not only stimulate these conversations, but to also encourage the students to continue them in their everyday lives in their schools and neighborhoods, and to work to achieve their dreams.
