Paul George Showcase Presented by: Finish Line x NIKE

Jan 26, 2019 1:00 and 3:00 PM Rocket Garden

Nike and Finish Line are celebrating the launch of the signature Paul George x NASA retail collaboration. Guests with daily admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on Saturday, January 26, 2019 are invited to attend the inaugural Paul George Showcase featuring games between four of Florida's top high school boys’ basketball teams. They will compete onsite, with the court set up next to the towering Mercury and Apollo-era rockets in the Rocket Garden.

This showcase will display the talents of Lakeland Christian versus The Masters Academy and Chaminade-Madonna versus Nova University. Tip-off for the games are at 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM (weather permitting). The event is hosted by Nike X Finish Line and Free Daps, with music by DJ EFX and special performances by the school's bands throughout the day. The Paul George PG 3 "NASA" sneaker draws inspiration from NASA's Armstrong Building 703 in Paul George’s hometown of Palmdale, California and honors his passion for space and the idea of limitless potential.
