Wednesday WOW- AAU, USBA, and the TBT

I need a vacation! This basketball life is a beast!

My four guys are determined to follow in their big brother’s path and who am I to refuse them? Jervon plays overseas and when he comes home he plays on a ProAm team. It helps keep him in shape and secures our family and friends the opportunity to see him play in the U.S.

It seems like the season never ends because of all the traveling and tournaments. But each year, there are certain games, that can’t be missed. I’m gonna tell you about them right quick.

TBT- Image may contain: one or more people They’ve been around since 2014. It’s the highest stakes basketball played anywhere in the world. Single elimination. A multi-million dollar prize. Winner takes all. TBT brings out the best in everyone. TBT champions have won $5.5M, including $5M by back-to-back-to-back Champions, Overseas Elite and $500,000 by the original TBT Champions, Notre Dame Fighting Alumni.  This years pot is $2 million dollars!

AAU-logoAAU-  is the largest sport in the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) the oldest and one of the LARGEST non-profit sports organizations in the US since 1888. We have been involved in this organization since 2005. Jervon played on Team United and the boys started with them. But now they are on Grind Academy’s roster.

The USBA tournament  is an upper class, high quality basketball tournaments for youth travel teams throughout the United States sine 2006.)

This past tournament with USBA was super fun and affordable because it was in Charlotte. This year  Allen Iverson, Jeremy Lamb, Charlotte Hornets guard, LeBron James (he was there to support his son Bronny)

If you are in Atlanta this weekend, come hang with us this Friday!

Game Days (HERE!)

Next game Super 16 in Atlanta, G.A. at the Georgia State University.  Prime Time plays Friday at 9 p.m.

In closing, Jervon prayed for one brother, and was given 4. They all share the same love of the game and with his guidance basketball will continue to rule in this household.  Because he’s been through these  experiences, it help the boy navigate smarter towards their goals.

Raw Truth-> This didn’t happen over night. It didn’t happen without help from others. And it surely wasn’t cheap! We constantly use our creativity to save money and enjoy local activities when available. But it works for us. Our goal is to get all of our children free higher education.  And for us, basketball and tennis has been the key. Anything above that is a blessing.
