June 15 -- Ex-NBA star Jerome "Junkyard Dog" Williams and ex-WNBA All-Star Andrea Stinson opened the 'SportsUnited' basketball clinic at the Zain Bahrain Basketball Arena in Um Al Hassam, Bahrain.

The event was attended by around 200 enthusiastic aspiring young basketball players, both boys and girls, who will participate in basketball drills and engage in dialogue with the two stars.

The clinic is part of the US Department of State's Sports Envoy Program 'SportsUnited,' which was organized by the US Embassy of Bahrain in cooperation with the General Organization for Youth and Sports, the Bahrain Basketball Association (BBA) and the Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Department.

Williams and Stinson addressed the youngsters after being formally introduced to the admiring Bahraini youths. They then conducted a short on-the-court clinic preview, and Williams thrilled onlookers with a rim-rattling one-handed slam dunk. Williams, played in the NBA for nine years, first with the Detroit Pistons and later on with the Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks.
