BT Sport has teamed up with Arsenal and the NBA to promote its coverage of the 2017 NBA Global Games London.

Working with its long-term partner Arsenal, BT Sport has created a special basketball-meets-football tricks video featuring Arsenal stars Aaron Ramsay, Alex Iwobi and Per Mertesacker.

In the video, the Gunners players combine with basketball tricks specialists, the Dunkin Devils, to deliver a series of stunning tricks and skills including slam dunks, heel-flicks and three-way link-ups.

The video was created to highlight BT Sport, the NBA’s official broadcast partner in the UK, simulcasting NBA Global Games London 2017 live to fans across the UK on BT Sport’s Facebook page, on the BT Sport Showcase channel (BT TV and Freeview channel 59), to all via, and via Virgin Media channel 548.
