It may be the off-season for most players, but competitive basketball will make a splash this summer with a unique opportunity for a lucky group of ballers to cash in on $2 Million in The Basketball Tournament. Among the potential winners are seven Westchester Knicks alumni who will compete in the 5-on-5, single-elimination tournament that begins this weekend with the TBT Jamboree in Philadelphia.
A total of 64 teams will play in The Basketball Tournament, representing four regions (Northeast, Midwest, South and West) made up of 16 teams each. Teams are self-formed, comprised of interesting, notable players from around the country.
The Northeast and South Regions will compete July 8-9, while the Midwest and West will compete July 15-16. The Super 16 will be held in Brooklyn from July 20-22, with Regional Championships on July 23 and Semifinals on Aug. 1.
The $2 Million, Winner-takes-all Championship will be broadcast on ESPN on Thursday, Aug. 3 at 7:00 p.m. Stay tuned to see if one of Westchester’s own will end the summer with a bang – and a few extra bucks.
