The NBA's biggest stars are heading to Dallas--and iHoops will be in the middle of all the action.
As part of NBA All-Star Weekend, iHoops will be setting up shop in the Lone Star State and offering a variety of interactive experiences for basketball fans on hand.
iHoops will be featured at NBA All-Star Jam Session in the Dallas Convention Center between Thursday and Saturday. During the Jam Session, iHoops will have several interactive opportunities lined up, including:
- The chance to preview the next big interactive component of iHoops.com. Called "The Breakdown," fans will be able to do a voiceover of NBA highlights and enter their call in a contest to win great prizes.
- A chance to explore the iHoops.com website, which will be projected on a large screen inside the NBA Cares section of Jam Session.
- One of the basketball courts set up inside the convention center will feature an iHoops Skills Challenge demonstration, and the competition course will be set up for basketball junkies to show off their fundamentals--passing, dribbling and shooting.
- iHoops will be giving away free merchandise, including headbands and wristbands.
In addition, iHoops will be on hand at the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge on Friday at the American Airlines Center. During a first-half timeout, iHoops will show off a sample Skills Challenge run, and two NBA players playing in the game will be there to assist the competitors. iHoops merchandise will also be given away at the game.
For those unable to be in Dallas, iHoops will be blogging from All-Star Weekend, as well as providing frequent updates of the weekend's festivities on our Facebook and Twitter pages. The iHoops crew will also be shooting video of various events in Dallas to show on iHoops.com at a later date.
