According to BBA president Steve Burgo, a delayed flight prevented Bradley from attending Wednesday's session, but Bradley made up for it by showing up bright and early Thursday and spending some one-on-one time with an out-of-town camper prior to the beginning of the event.

"We had a young man named Charlie Masters from Philadelphia here," said Burgo, "and he was leaving to go home this morning.
"It means everything to have him here," said Burgo, who hopes to have an indoor facility, complete with four additional courts, a homework lab, and indoor track and more added to the complex by winter's end. "He is so down to earth and he is great with the kids. "He will also bring notoriety to our complex and let people know we are for real. Hopefully, this helps the Celtics and the NBA know we are for real. Everything we do here is for the kids. It's all about the kids." Burgo and Bradley met for the first time Wednesday night after the Celtics guard arrived from the airport.
They went out to dinner and Burgo said Bradley was as humble as they come.

The drive-in movie night was yet another result of Steve Burgo's vision and recurring commitment to provide a positive and purposeful destination and activity for SouthCoast youth.

With "Bee Movie" encompassing an inflatable Jumbotron-sized screen, blankets and beach chairs serving as the theatre, and popcorn, cotton candy and refreshments providing all the traditions of simpler times, Steve Burgo successfully converted his multiplex of basketball courts into a larger-than-life movie stage.
At $20 per car load and with video and sound quality surpassing that of any local indoor cinema, the night was complete with laughter, pick-up basketball games and a genuine sense of community that reminded us all what Dartmouth pride once was all about.
For those who have not experienced the complex - actually the community - that Steve and Donna Burgo as well as tireless volunteers have created, stop by for a summer league basketball game, refine your once can't-miss jump shot or lend your support to continuing to build upon the Burgos' dream.

The journey has been anything but smooth sailing, but the final destination is appearing on the horizon. Steve Burgo's only goal is to stay on course.
"It's been a long time getting there," said Burgo, whose dream of a regional basketball complex is some seven years in the making. "But we can finally feel it all coming together."
Burgo formed the Burgo Basketball Association in the late 1990s, with 80 players afforded the opportunity to play in a 10-team league. Supervised games were played on a newly constructed court that sat in the middle of Burgo's backyard. That Dartmouth yard became the proving ground for SouthCoast youth intent on honing their basketball skills but, more importantly, it gave them a chance to grow together.
"We need to reach more kids and let them know they're all the same," Burgo said.
Sitting down with a handful of people who shared his dream, Burgo devised a plan he shared with the Dartmouth Selectmen and Planning Board in March 2000. Burgo was seeking permission to build on the 12-acre McBratney parcel off Slocum Road. The recently donated site, in Burgo's mind, was a perfect location.
He brought a three-foot scale model illustrating the proposed layout, letters of support from within the community and promises of support from beyond Dartmouth's borders. The proposal worked, with Burgo first awarded the land, then gaining promises of help from the Army Corps of Engineers for the massive construction ahead.
But when the events of 9/11 unfolded, those promises were suddenly withdrawn.
"Basically, we were forced to beg," Burgo said.
"Those people donated their time and helped clear the area pretty much on a daily basis," Burgo said. "As soon as we got the land, I knew what I wanted and thanks to those guys and others like them, it's all starting to take shape."
Re-named the Dartmouth Joseph Burgo Southeastern Regional Basketball Complex after his father, Steve Burgo's project appears within months of completion.
Burgo also emphasized the purpose of the complex is not to attract the elite basketball player.
"On the contrary," he said.
Burgo spoke of Steve Gaspar, the boys basketball coach at Dartmouth High, who's done tremendous work for the youth of the community and recently joined as a board member.
"We all care about these young people and want to do whatever we can to create a positive influence on them," Burgo said.
Steve Burgo's dream focuses on the youth of Greater New Bedford.
"They need to know they're all the same," he said while explaining the dream that was interrupted by a nightmare 16 months ago.
He was a terrific young man," Burgo said.
As a youth growing up in the 1960s and 70s, Steve Burgo was a basketball junkie who spent much of his free time playing on the courts at Buttonwood Park.
"I played four years of high school basketball at Dartmouth, and the Buttonwood Park League was a great place to improve your game in the offseason. Everybody who was serious about the game of basketball wanted to play in the summer league," Burgo said.
And, back then, everybody seemed to get along.
That wasn't the case years later when Steve tried to re-live his youth through the basketball experiences of his youngest son, Lance. But, unlike his dad, Lance was reluctant to talk about his summer nights in the asphalt jungle. "It was like pulling teeth trying to get something out of him," Steve recalled. And when Lance did speak, he talked about the game that was interrupted by a drug deal or the time teenagers with baseball bats came looking for someone Lance never even knew.
The stories were different, but the message was always the same.
"Lance, his friends and other kids who just wanted to play basketball couldn't find a safe place to play," Burgo said.
After hearing more than his share of horror stories, Steve Burgo responded the only way he knew how. He built a basketball court in the safety zone of his own backyard. Within months, the Burgo Basketball Association was formed, featuring some 80 players competing in a 10-team league.
The man who had been involved in sports all of his life without ever having to worry about where he was going to play had made it possible for a younger generation of basketball players to share his experience. A decade later, the sharing continues through an expanded complex off Slocum Road in North Dartmouth - one that will eventually include five basketball courts, two sand volleyball pits, two tennis courts, a walking track and playground for outside activities along with a series of indoor basketball courts, weight and recreation rooms.
"We need to reach more kids, and this is my way of trying to do that," Burgo said.
"Losing someone like Kyle at such a tender age is a tragedy and so many people have been affected by his death," Burgo said.

DARTMOUTH - Bank Five and WSAR have named Steven M. Burgo of Dartmouth as their latest Hometown Hero. Burgo was recognized for being a true champion for hundreds of SouthCoast youth by establishing the Burgo Basketball League to help keep kids on the basketball court and out of trouble.
"Steve is a motivated and caring individual," said Mr. Lyons.
It is a privilege to recognize Steve as our Hometown Hero."
The Burgo Basketball League was started in the backyard of Burgo's South Dartmouth home in 1994 after a frightening incident was experienced by his son and friends at an out-of-town basketball court. Burgo vowed after that incident that local youngsters would have their own courts to play on.

DARTMOUTH -- Basketball is Steve Burgo's passion. Keeping kids focused on life is his mission.
For the past 11 years, about 120 teenagers from across SouthCoast have been drawn each summer to Mr. Burgo's basketball court in his backyard on Bakerville Road to play ball.
Under lights and far removed from today's urban violence, the 54-year-old former Sears manager and local basketball star has provided teens with a safe place on hot summer nights to play basketball.
The only requirements are a love of the game, a pair of sneakers and a willingness to follow his rules about proper conduct.
For his unswerving devotion to SouthCoast youth, Mr. Burgo has been selected as The Standard-Times' 2005 Man of the Year for Da
