LittyHoops On The Airwaves

Jump to Comments

Last week I launched a basketball contest on Sportsvite called “Play With The Pros”. The contest allows basketball players to submit their own highlight videos. A panel of expert judges along with the entire sportsvite community determines the best player. That player will receive a private tryout with an ABA team and is guaranteed to play in at least one game with the team as the 13th man.

I was pumped for this contest. It takes a lot to pull something like this off but our team did a great job coordinating all the moving parts and the ABA has been a perfect partner. We need to ramp up on entries and the contest hasn’t received the press coverage I was hoping for but we’ll go back to the drawing board and figure out how to maximize results on both counts.

If you want a good laugh, listen to my interview on ABA All-Access Radio with Robby Kendall. My mom couldn’t be any prouder (that’s one of many reasons why Mom’s are great).My little sister gave me a hard time for repeating um….ummm…ummm throughout the conversation. Personally, I think I sound like a weirdo. This was definitely not a Mike and the Mad Dog worthy performance. Perhaps I have a new found respect for those bozos.
