Ten past and present NBA basketball players belonging to the Christian athletic foundation SportsPower International recently came on a week-long pilgrimage and solidarity visit to Israel, conducting clinics, putting on exhibition games and meeting with dignitaries to express their support for the Jewish state.

The tour was organized by Bill Alexson, a former pro player and the long-time chaplain of the Boston Celtic who founded SportsPower. The group also featured former New York Knicks Allan Houston and Anthony Bonner, former Toronto Raptor Jerome Williams, former San Antonio Spurs forward David Wood, ball-whiz Charles Smith of the Harlem Globetrotters, as well as Dwight Howard, Sr., father of one the NBA’s current top stars.
