To tip-off the NBA season, Kia Motors (in partnership with the NBA) is putting on an unprecedented event at NYC's Union Square this Tuesday Oct 28th, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. To say the least, it-is-going-to-be-insane!
For this FREE one-day event, Kia has built a full-size basketball court on an elevated platform, a three-story DJ tower, and a 8x10' video wall. They'll also be doing a live radio broadcast of the day's events hosted by
The Basketball Jones ESPN's Michael Kay.
Current Knicks players David Lee, Nate Robinson, Malik Rose, Danilo Gallinari and the Knicks City Dancers are scheduled to appear with NBA and Knicks Legends Walt Clyde Frazier, John Starks, Kareem Abdul Jabaar, Scottie Pippen, Kenny Walker, Charles Smith and even Spike Lee!
Attendees will get a chance to play on the basketball court, win prizes and meet their favorite players/directors. Sounds pretty cool.
Anyway, if you plan on attending this event, take your camera and get in touch. A full-fledged report and/or photos for the BDL public would be wonderful. Talk to me.
