FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno City College gymnasium was the place to be Sunday afternoon with the Fresno Pro-Am in full swing.

Big names like NBA veteran Rudy Gay, Fresno Mayor Jerry Dyer, and Avenal's former boxing champ Jose Ramirez all gathered to watch some big-time basketball.

Not only were players dishing it out on the court, but they gave back to the Valley with a back-to-school drive.

The efforts were spearheaded by former San Joaquin Memorial grad and NBA veteran Quincy Pondexter.

"Let's bring the community together," he said. "That's what it's all about -- bringing the city of Fresno together."

Former Bulldog turned Miami Heat big man Orlando Robinson was also in the house.

He's fresh off being named to the All-Summer League first-team, signing a one-year deal with the Miami Heat.

His former teammate and current Bulldog point guard, Isaiah Hill balled out, leading his squad to a Fresno Pro-Am title.
