Former Cavalier returns to Cleveland to give back to inner city kids

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -Smush Parker only played one season with the Cavaliers, but the city certainly left an impact on him.

" I played my rookie season with the Cavs so the city really holds a special place in my heart."

Parker returned to Cleveland for his Smush Parker Elite Camp at the Boys and Girls Club to give his knowledge on, and off to court to area youngsters.

The kids participated in on court drills, and received a speech from Parker about the importance of education.

“I didn’t take school seriously, for me it was all about basketball, so I want to share the importance of education with these kids so they know and understand there’s more to life than just the basketball court."
