NBA great Horace Grant to hold basketball camp in SLO

Central Coast kids will have a chance this summer to learn from four-time NBA World Champion Horace Grant. The 17 year NBA veteran lives in Arroyo Grande with his family.

Grant is putting on a four day camp from June 25-28 at San Luis Obispo High School for kids 10 to 18 years of age.

The 6-10 Grant was known as "The General" in his goggle-wearing playing days. He won three NBA titles with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen on the Chicago Bulls, before winning a championship with the Lakers in 2000-01.

Horace says the camp is his way of paying it forward. "What I get out of it is I love kids. I absolutely love kids. And when I was growing up the community gave me an opportunity to play basketball and helped me out financially and motivated me and that's this camp is all about," said Grant.

The camp costs $400 per child. Grant says he and his wife Andrea are offering scholarships to up to twenty children.
