On July 26, 2019, the 2020 five-star point guard RJ Hampton officially signed with Li Ning brand.
RJ Hampton, a 2020 five-star point guard from Dallas, Texas, loves basketball so much that the 18-year-old has filled his high school career with the sport. His outstanding performance in many competitions makes him stand out among his peers. The winning of the 2017 FIBA America U16 championship and the 2018 FIBA U17 World Cup showed his outstanding basketball talent to the world.
This summer, RJ Hampton, who received the invitation of many famous universities in USA, did not choose to enter the university to participate in the NCAA League, but chose to directly participate in the international professional basketball league and become a member of the New Zealand Crusher team of the Australian National Basketball League (NBL). “My parents both went to college, and my mother got a master’s degree. In our family, it’s important to focus on basketball. You can go back to college, but as an athlete, there are very few opportunities to play professional basketball, and I want to take advantage of it. He, who started his career early, also conveyed his attitude to the outside world: “I want to be a global facade, not just an American one.”
This 18-year-old young man needs great self-confidence and strength in every choice, which is the interpretation of Li Ning’s brand spirit of “burning passion with sports, stimulating every athlete, and turning impossible into possible”. Congratulation! Li Ning has one more talented member of the basketball family.
