Lil Wayne, Bow Wow Play Basketball With South Beach AllStars Youth Team
Weezy was one of a handful of celebrities who joined the seventh and eighth grade South Beach All Stars amateur athletic union team Saturday for Celebrity Court of Dreams, a charity game at American Airlines Arena. The kids had the chance to be coached by and even play alongside the stars, all to benefit their championship team.

Through his Tickets of America and White Glove International companies, Lipman compiled and sponsored the AAU team and connected with Lil Wayne and other celebrities to put together what turned out to be a wonderful event benefiting the South Beach All Stars. With the list of expenses associated with running a championship AAU team, they need all the help they can get.
"We compete with elite teams on the national level athletically," Lipman said during his pre-game address. "But what's important is that we compete in the classroom. And we plan on being with you through it all -- from the moment you put on that jersey to the time you are entering a Division I college or even the NBA."
"This program teaches kids patience and respect for authority and each other." said Elvin Taylor, who Lipman called a wonderful dad and mentor. "Its not just about basketball -- it teaches them to deal with emotions and choices."
