As I studied with these guys, they send me regular updates and info on how to get ahead/into the world of sports/basketball.
It didnt work out for me and I can never do much with the stuff/invites they send me, mainly because of that rather large pond in between my country and the US.
So, I just got this invite through, with a insider chance of registering and attending the Las Vegas Summer League............with all sorts of added bonus stuff, and thought some of you might be interested =
