Some serious star power showed up in the Munford High School gym on Wednesday.

Ja Morant, the all-star guard for the Memphis Grizzlies and one of the most popular basketball players in the world, made an appearance at the Stark Skills Academy Camp.

And he put on a show.


In addition to showing his dunking ability with a reverse jam, he led the kids in a baseline-to-baseline march/dance that can be seen right here.

After a professional career that included time with Minnesota Timberwolves summer league team, Stark decided to start up a basketball camp because he wanted to give back to his community by teaching kids the game of basketball

“Munford is a very small town, it doesn’t get talked about a lot and I want to be able to impact and let kids know that they can do it, no matter what kind of situation you’re in,” Stark said. “No matter where you come from, how small the town is, you can do it if you just work hard.
