    Basketball legend George "The Iceman" Gervin will join youth in  San Francisco's Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood on Saturday for the  conclusion of a youth basketball clinic emphasizing education and health.

          The Shaping and Preparing Youth clinic began earlier this month  and will conclude Saturday at the Joseph Lee Recreation Center at 1395  Mendell St.
         
    "It has been an amazing experience to work with the young people  of Bayview-Hunters Point," the NBA Hall of Fame inductee said in a prepared  statement. "I've learned so much from them and I hope I was able to help some  stay on a smart track for their future."
       
    The series of clinics and seminars, which aims to keep young  people engaged in healthy activities over the summer, was presented by  Shaping and Preparing Youth in conjunction with the San Francisco Housing  Authority.
         
    Gervin, who played for the San Antonio Spurs, and Ronny Turiaf, of  the New York Knicks, will take part in the final day celebration.
         
    Games take place from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and a  meet-and-greet is scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
