In order to prepare for the future, we must revered the past and celebrate the present. Lofty goals? Perhaps but not impossible especially when you have the combined resources of http://nike.com” target=”_blank”>Nike Basketball, http://jumpman23.com” target=”_blank”>Jordan Brand, and http://converse.com” target=”_blank”>CONVERSE. Introducing The Ball Room, a 1250 square feet temporary museum honoring the past, the present, and the future of basketball. From historical memorabilia borrowed from http://hoophall.com” target=”_blank”>Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, to a myriad of molded parts for Hyperfuse and Hyperdunk. It is a life-size timeline and interactive exhibition, which encourages visitors to not only visualize, but also use all their senses in experience the game of basketball. Unfortunately, the space is a temporary one, lasting from now till August 29th. For the time being, it should be an attraction on everyone’s must visit list.
