A local Dallas resident just scored big. Now it’s time for him to give it his best shot.
Metro launched a partnership with Giannis earlier this year with a promise: to help fans stay better connected to their hero. Yes, Metro customers can stay connected with coast to coast network coverage, but Metro wanted to take it up a notch. Why? Because Giannis may be the most lovable MVP candidate ever—one who regularly connects with his fans in heartwarming moments like this. And who doesn’t want to see more of those moments?
Now, Metro is helping another special fan get the chance to connect with Giannis in-person at a Metro TV commercial shoot through the Metro H-O-R-S-E tournament. But they have to show off some mad shot-making skills first.
Over the past five weeks, Giannis and Metro have encouraged basketball fans to put down the bracket and pick up a basketball for a new shot challenge each week, curated by some of the most talented ball-handlers in the social media game, Tristan Jass, Jesser, Kris London, and Cash. To enter, hopefuls simply followed one or more of these influencers to see their new challenge shot each Monday, starting April 15, 2019. Participants then submitted a video showcasing their skills using hashtag #MetroFREAK.
After five weeks, each influencer then selected a winner from the video submissions to be their teammate in a LIVE tournament challenge in California on June 4. The four pairs will square off in a showdown to crown the Metro H-O-R-S-E champion, trading turns taking half court heaves, behind-the-backboard rainbows or even a shot heretofore never seen by the viewing public. The possibilities are endless!
The results are in: Devon King from Dallas, Georgia will be competing on June 4 in the Metro-hosted basketball tournament in California outside of Oakland for a chance to meet with Giannis himself.
