Before Dwight Howard became an NBA All-Star, before Josh Smith and Gerald Green won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, before O.J. Mayo, Michael Beasley, and Kevin Love became All-Americans and before Brandon Rush and Mario Chalmers led Kansas to the 2008 NCAA Championship, they all had one thing in common - they participated in the Rose City Showcase by NIKE! Now in our 17th year,
the Showcase is held in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon, in partnership with the Portland Rose Festival with over 100 years of Oregon tradition and celebration! Once again we will serve as the host to the nation's top grassroots basketball players in the country and catch a glimpse at some of the future college and NBA stars of tomorrow!
