Standard Life GB player Pops Mensah-Bonsu, who was 2012 Final Four MVP with Turkish side, Besiktas Milangaz, was on hand to help Boris Johnson with his basketball skills to announce the host of basketball activities taking place in the capital next month.
Euroleague Basketball announced a unique and expansive Fan Zone that will make basketball a centerpiece at one of London's signature attractions, Trafalgar Square, with three days' worth of activities free to the public; and the organization of activities under the One Team corporate social responsibility programme that will continue Euroleague Basketball's grass-roots work in the UK well after the Final Four is over.
Mensah-Bonsu told Euroleague Basketball: "The Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four is the biggest basketball event outside of the NBA Finals and the commitment by Euroleague confirms London as an up-and-coming city in basketball terms.
"I have no doubt the local support will be huge, much like when I played in the Paris Final Four event. I look forward to heading down to the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Fan Zone in Trafalgar Square to shoot some hoops with the kids and share the love we all have for this sport."
