The History

The 10th Annual Ballislife All-American Game presented by Crossover Culture, will feature many of the nation’s top high school boy basketball players. The national high school all-star game is set to take place in Los Angeles on May 6th at Cerritos College.

As traditional media outlets struggle to capture the attention of basketball’s young fans, is the perfect marriage for fans who love authentic basketball in the streets and playgrounds all over the world and the traditional levels (high school, college, NBA) in America. not only produces industry-leading video content, it has also developed into a main hub for fans, coaches and players to watch highlights of the nation’s best talent, follow the nation’s top teams in the FAB 50 National Rankings, and learn about the latest from our streetball teams.

As social media has grown over the past 15 years, it has allowed knowledgeable basketball fans to publicly question the validity of traditional national all-star games’ selection process. As a result, BIL created its own national all-star game in 2011 with the goal of selecting the most deserving players regardless of geography, mainstream player rankings, or shoe affiliation. The 2023 edition of the BIL All-American Game includes some of the best talent in the nation.

Past BIL A-A Game participants include Donovan Mitchell (Cavs), Trae Young and Dejounte Murray (Hawks) and Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball (Bulls).

The Ballislife All-American game will feature three Duke recruits: Boogie Ellis (Mission Bay, San Diego, Calif.), Vernon Carey (University School, Southwest Ranches, Fla.), and Cassius Stanley (Sierra Canyon, Chatsworth, Calif.).
