Professional basketball players Joe and Jordan Crawford return to Detroit June 20-23 to host the International Basketball Expo. Among the events are a professional sports development forum, a basketball training camp led by Jordan and an international pro basketball exhibition game.
“It’s something we dreamed about our whole lives,” Joe said. “To be at this point now is kind of unbelievable in a sense, but it’s good to be able to give back to the community, see some old faces and bring that love back to the city.”
Jordan is currently a member of the Boston Celtics, while Joe plays international basketball, most recently with Maccabi Rishon in Israel. The brothers are natives of Detroit. Joe competed collegiately at the University of Kentucky, while Jordan played for Indiana and Xavier.
