The start of the NBA Championship Finals is like Christmas for many NBA basketball fans. Some of the games brightest stars such as LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant, plus Saginaw’s Draymond Green -- and even Flint native JaVale McGee -- will be suiting up for action in the 2017 matchup. In a town of less than 100,000, dozens of high-profile professional athletes have risen to stardom from Flint in the last 30 years.

In Flint, here is a group of young athletes who will be tuned in for the action after likely hitting the blacktop or hardwood themselves. These are the next generation of Flintstones who hope to hoist the golden Larry O’Brien championship trophy someday. This is what the future of basketball looks like in Flint, Michigan.
