He added, “We will help them leverage the renewed brand awareness and visibility created by their new NBA deal and use our platform to turn that attention into sales.”

It is a perfect time and environment to introduce them to our line of basketballs.”

SportsEdTV will feature Wilson basketball advertising in a variety of formats on their website, will utilize clickable ad overlay technology to allow consumers to click ads while watching SportsEdTV videos, and will activate its worldwide network of contributors, led by former Miami Heat player and SportsEdTV Executive Director of Basketball Mark Strickland, to garner increased support for the brand.
About SportsEdTV: SportsEdTV exists to help athletes, coaches and parents LEARN, WIN, and CELEBRATE. We don’t expect everyone who uses our learning tools to become a world champion – that’s not our mission. We do expect people who use our educational resources to become their own champion, by whatever definition they view success in their chosen sport. For some, success is making the varsity team, for others, it’s becoming country champion, and for others still, it may simply be gaining proficiency at a sport that offers a lifetime of fun and fitness. To us, no matter your aspirations in sport, if you are striving to improve, you are winning! As a leading sports education media company, we provide FREE video and blog content to anyone in the world with an internet connection. We also offer a global online community — where athletes, parents, and coaches can interact, connect, chat, share content and find new friends — and a global directory of facilities and coaches. SportsEdTV videos feature coaching from world-class coaches and athletes – many of whom are or have coached world champions – and have been watched by viewers in every country in the world.
