10:25 AMIt appears that the #InMyFeelingsChallenge is still going strong. This time, everyone give a round of applause to Detroit Pistons star Andre Drummond for keeping the dance craze alive for a group of young ballers.

On Sunday, more than 300 youth players from 35 countries filed into the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida, to kick off the inaugural Jr. NBA World Championship. The boys and girls joined Drummond for a dance-off right before the tipoff ceremony, and they pulled off the massive challenge.

The dance party took on a life of its own as the youths, ages 13 and 14, did the Cupid Shuffle and listened to other music, forming a bond en route to the championship that will run until Aug. 12.

Drummond and former WNBA player Jennifer Azzi took questions from the players that ranged from how to become a highly noticed post player to on-court advice. Drummond responded with sage advice. “Any player needs dedication to their craft and the determination to succeed,” Drummond said.

The first day ended in some one-on-one action between Drummond and players from the different teams, and the rest of the week will showcase skills of the players and coaches participating from all over the world.

After the tipoff ceremony, players and coaches made their way to Magic Kingdom to take part in a parade and park day.
