SLAM DUNK: One of the NBL’s most entertaining dunkers, Casey Frank, will be hitting Auckland’s courts next week.

Do you want to see some old-school legends back on the court, dunking like Jordan?

A free basketball event is being held at Youthtown Central on December 7 to showcase the premier men's Summer Jam final as well as a New Zealand legends game and a celebrity All-Star match.

Auckland Basketball general manager Dave MacKay says the event will be a mix of competitive and fun basketball.

"It's exciting to see the best talent on the court that Auckland can offer as well as these older legends of the game who still have a bit of a competitive streak.

"Youthtown is sort of the spiritual home of basketball in Auckland. A lot of people have a connection there. It's pretty cool to be able to host a strong community event there."

There will be a DJ, food stalls and prizes to be won.

Head along to the Youthtown All Star Saturday on December 7 from noon at Youthtown, 68a Nelson St, Auckland, to check it out.
