Learning is Fundamental
__
@chef_voy_ardee, Joel Anthony and their NBA peers compete in a Wall Street dice game called Pig, learning about business decision-making and being aware of how your habits and emotions change based on perceived risk. #NBPARealEstate

Entering into Real Estate
__
At NBPA HQ, @rajonrondo, Ronnie Price and @justinh41, as well as more than a dozen NBA players, form breakout groups with leaders in real estate to initiate their first discussions inside the industry. #NBPARealEstate

Real Talk
__
@grannydanger33, @devean.george and @luoldeng9 speak to more than a dozen NBA players about their business successes and experiences to open up the third annual #NBPARealEstate symposium at NBPA Headquarters.

Luol's biggest advice to the group (he has projects in London and South Sudan): "It's not about hitting a home run. I put a team together and trusted them. I started small. And just figure out how you're going to get into it. Are you trying to invest with others or get hands-on yourself?"

Ball's in His Court
__
Just days before the NBA draft, Lonzo Ball (@zo) signed an exclusive trading card deal with Panini. And on Thursday night, the company will be creating its first rookie card in real-time at PaniniInstant.com as Ball is drafted by his new team.

Ball has been in command ever since stepping foot at UCLA, where he led the country this past season in assists (7.7 per game). Then came building Bigballerbrand, being a basketball leader for his brothers, making his own music and overall becoming a top PG prospect and trendsetter.

Check out our bio for the video recap inside the full week of the camp.

"When I first came to the NBA, I used to go to my teammate’s house like everyday after practice just so I could play with his daughter. I’ve always loved kids. So now to have two of my own -- little Chris and Camryn -- I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world." - Chris Paul (@cp3)
