Some deserving students at Miller Wall Elementary in Marrero got a visit from Pelicans players today and something extra: free tickets to the NBA All-Star game jam session.
Pelicans guard Austin Rivers gave them the good news.
This group of All-Star students earned the tickets for being well-behaved and for excelling in reading.
“I’m looking forward to the NBA All- Star Weekend. For me to be able to help out and see some of these kids there have fun with them and to represent New Orleans as a city is an honor. So I’m excited,” Pelicans guard Austin Rivers said.
The NBA All -Star sessions is a big, interactive fan event coming to the Convention Center during NBA All- Star Week.
The game is set for Sunday, February 16th in the New Orleans Arena.
