Ever since the lockdown was enforced to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus in late March, the NBA Basketball School Program in India has been conducting live sessions like these.

They have invited multiple NBA Academy India student-athletes and hosted Scott Flemming, the Technical Director of the NBA Academy India, as guests to share their experiences with the young ballers from the program.

They even held a special Father's Day session which included a basketball-and-workout session for the student with their respective fathers.
