TAKE IT TO THE HOOP

Basketball players (henceforth ballers) use this statement on court all the time. It means to dribble, drive and score on offense - a strong, bold approach to one of the most fun aspects of the game, scoring. It speaks of not hesitating and going after what you want. And whether you're a seasoned player, or have never picked up a basketball in your life, this is exactly what we want for all our users this month!

We would like to share the fun of playing basketball with everyone this entire month - participate in events / tournaments at a store near you, buy great products online, and take part in fun contests on social media.

 

It is time for us ballers to unite! Go for it - take it to the hoop!"

Being tall does give you some inherent advantages on the basketball court! Having said that, if you find yourself vertically challenged, should you continue playing? My answer is yes.
