Last week marked the return of the PXA basketball tournament to the city of Paris. Hosted by Nike Stadium Paris and Pigalle Paris, the event invited different personalities of the fashion and music industry around Europe to celebrate the fun side of basketball. The tournament started at the Pigalle court, then moved to an indoor gym and finally celebrated the semi-finals and finals at Cite Universitaire (where the World Basketball Festival was taking place).

Paris Team O5 won the finals against the German Team Port Authority followed by a party featuring Mayback Music rapper Stanley, Teki Latex and Cut killer with NBA player Boris Diaw in attendance too. Love and basketball was the mood for the PXA 2012 and we are already looking forward to the next edition.

Photographer Daniella Benedetti beautifully documents the day.
