Seattle Pro-Am Opener
The Seattle Pro-Am tipped off their first game of the season on July 10th at 10 PM. The Seattle Pro-Am played after the Seattle Storm game, right in Seattle's own KeyArena. The Seattle Pro-Am will run July through August, and regular season games will be played at Seattle Pacific University.
"I feel like Seattle raised me. I owe Seattle everything." explained Jamal Crawford. "It's always exciting to come back to the Key, not having the Sonics, that was the road trip I looked forward to the most. Coming home in front of your family and friends, and not having that, there's been a void there." said Crawford.
The Seattle Pro-Am will feature NBA talent throughout the season, as players, coaches and spectators.
