Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
The Street Basketball Association and the SBA Sports Management and Entertainment Group are pleased to announce that celebrity superstar and 5-time NBA Champion Dennis Rodman will headline the upcoming SBA Show European Tour featuring the SBA All-Stars and former NBA Players Tim Hardaway, Dee Brown, Dale Ellis, and Oliver Miller. The SBA is managing and directing the Tour, featuring a 10-player team roster consisting of 5 former NBA Stars and 5 SBA All-Star Street Ball Legends from November 9 - November 16, 2009.
The Tour will be the first of its kind that will showcase former NBA Stars playing with Street Ball All-Stars. "We are very excited about the upcoming European Show Tour as we have put together an impressive team of fan favorites, consisting of former NBA All-stars, NBA Champions, an Olympic Gold Medalist with one of the USA Dream Teams, a NBA All-Star Weekend Slam Dunk Champion, and a NBA All-Star Weekend 3-Point Shootout Champion. By pairing these players with the amazing athletic talents of the top professional street ball players in the world, the SBA has again proved itself as the leader in the street ball and global basketball industry. The basketball fans in Europe are going to be treated to first class, one-of-a-kind entertaining basketball exhibitions," states Matthew Rosner, Director of Basketball for the Street Basketball Association.
Along with 5-Time NBA Champion Dennis Rodman, 5-Time NBA All-Star and Olympic Gold Medalist, Tim Hardaway, and former NBA Slam Dunk Champion Dee Brown, with his signature "no-look" dunk, as the most well known of the former NBA Stars, the SBA has assembled one of the most explosive SBA All-Star Teams ever. SBA All-Stars Hot Sauce, Air Up There, aka Mr. 720, Baby Shaq, Pat Da-Roc, High Rizer, Air Bama, Aggressor, and 7 & Sum Change will bring the additional entertainment value and overall exposure that will fuel the anticipation from the fans throughout Europe awaiting the SBA Show Tour. This will be the first time for some to see some of their favorite former NBA Stars and Street Ball All-Stars in person on one team instead of on the television or internet. "Fans all over the world have always treated us great and we are eagerly looking forward to entertaining the crowds in Europe and putting on a show," states SBA All-Star Pat Da-Roc.
The SBA has partnered with European Sports Promotions Company, Global Projects, securing shows in Antwerp and Charleroi, Belgium and Trier, Germany November 9 - November 16, 2009. The SBA anticipates extending the tour throughout the month of November with additional shows as the SBA is currently having ongoing discussions with several European Clubs, Teams, and Sponsors interested in promoting the SBA Show European Tour. With the SBA, organizations looking to host the Tour will have the opportunity to align themselves with the explosive international growth of the SBA. The SBA continues to be a valuable asset for top businesses, companies, promoters, sponsors, teams and leagues throughout the world seeking basketball/street basketball consultation, development, event/tour management and marketing support.
Jerrod Mustaf, President of the SBA, states that having the SBA All-Stars and former NBA Superstars touring Europe together "will further strengthen the SBA's position within the world of basketball giving organizations interested in marketing and developing the sport globally the opportunity to be associated with a rapidly emerging and experienced international basketball company. The SBA has become a leader in international basketball with a number of grassroots development programs and basketball entertainment exhibitions, and we look forward to continuing our growth with industry contacts and partners from the recently sanctioned, SBA International Basketball Federation."
