Hey fellas,

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. :wink:

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 =

Hmm.... some how this is all part of a giant international pyramid scheme isn't it strads?! lol

I would be interested, But sadly I think I will be busy in July. also that's a lot of cash to watch bench players play... if it was in the bay area maybe, but I can't afford to fly down, stay in a hotel (in vegas mind you), and then pay for tickets. this is why I need to get rich!

Just curious how did you get the invite?

Of course man, I just thought and knew of a few people here who were looking for and dreaming of ways to crack into the world of basketball...........so thought Id give them an opportunity that I cant take.

Its more than just watching the games though man, its attending the meetings/seminars, meeting all those people I listed, getting tips on how to get into a job and generally networking and schmoozing with the big wigs of basketball.

How I got it? well I did a basketball course through them, on general management and scouting.........from completing that, I am a part of the community and as such get special invites/opportunites for things like this.
