Every day that passes, we’re closer to confirming that there will be no NBA games played this season. With players locked out from their teams, they need somewhere to stay. Thankfully, GameStop has stepped in and offered these homeless athletes some nice, warm shelter in trade for playing Kinect Sports for Xbox’s Gaming and Giving for Good event. The event will take place on October 1, so If you’ve ever wanted to try to beat your favorite NBA superstar at sports, this is probably your only chance.
If you live near Bellevue, Washington, then stop into 242 Bellevue Square’s GameStop to meet 2006 Rookie of the Year and three-time NBA All-Star Brandon Roy of the Portland Trailblazers.
