Together, between the NBPA and THINK450, the All-Star experience for players this weekend has been unprecedented.
“NBA players are already the most marketable athletes on the planet, and we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface in terms of what they can accomplish collectively off the court,” said Que Gaskins, Chief Brand Officer, THINK450. “With THINK450, now is the time to take the next step in harnessing this marketing power and be truly disruptive — not just for a few, but for all 450 players, and those to come in the future.”
