Attention basketball fans of all ages!
The National Basketball Association (NBA) will host the first “NBA Iconic
Shots Challenge” on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26 at the Mega Fashion
Hall activity center, SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City, Philippines.
The NBA Iconic Shots Challenge is an immersive basketball experience that
will provide fans with the opportunity to attempt select signature shots from
the league’s landmark 75th Anniversary Season, which concluded last
week with the Golden State Warriors winning their fourth NBA championship in
eight years and seventh championship overall.
Simulating an authentic NBA arena atmosphere, the challenge will take place
on a half-court in front of a virtual audience displayed on a curved LED
panel. Each player will have 60 seconds to score from five different
spots on the court, ranging from four feet to 24 feet, and complete the
shooting challenge in the following order: layup, floater, midrange jump shot
and three-pointers from the wing and the top of the arc.
Each participant must make the basket or take at least three attempts before
moving on to the next shot location. In addition, each made basket will
have a corresponding prize from a selection of premium partner items, NBA Store
gift vouchers and official NBA merchandise. The on-ground activation will
also feature a pop-up NBA Store and interactive partner booths.
“We’re excited for the return of in-person NBA events with our first NBA
Iconic Shots Challenge,” said Mae Dichupa, Senior Director of Global
Marketing Partnerships, NBA Philippines. “Thanks to the support of
our partners, the NBA Iconic Shots Challenge will allow passionate Filipino
fans to celebrate the players and moments that made our 75th
Anniversary Season so memorable.”
The NBA Iconic Shots Challenge is supported by official partners AXA
Philippines, Energen Champion and Gatorade and official media partners Cignal,
Globe, Smart, and PLDT. Official NBA merchandise are available through
the NBA Store and NBAStore.com.ph,
the official online NBA Store in the Philippines.
