The champs get some swag…

One of the items on the (small) list of complaints by some EntourageBBall players last season was the lack of a matching look during practice.
Team scrimmages were sometimes a confusing affair, and the addition of notorious trickster Jerel to the squad compounded the problem even more. Rel urgently calling for an outlet pass (from opposing players) led to many turnovers and frustrations in the heat of the moment 🙂

Investing the 500 Dollar prize money from the Crossover League title win, team manager Dave flipped that reward into a custom-made reversible training top for the team. Prime sponsor Matsing, generously covered the balance of the purchase.

Inspired by NBA-teams’ practice gear, a proposal was sent to E.B.I. uniform makers, DOS-Hong Kong, who then, as always, helped design the item. The final sketch was decided upon by team management with added input from Matsing Managing Director, Mike.

The new jerseys are another step in the right direction for the reigning champs, giving the players something more to identify with Entourage Basketball Inc. while showing the leadership’s dedication to the upcoming season.
