Would you like to challenge an NBA player in one-on-one? From today it is possible, just pay.
As noted by Sky Sports, some NBA players give fans a chance to challenge them one-on-one for a few hundred dollars. In charge of organizing the whole thing is the Celebrity Sports Academy, a company that specializes in organizing summer camps with NBA players. CSA has recently expanded its offerings, giving camp participants and their parents other options as well.
For example, one can challenge Jimmy Butler in a one-on-one contest to see who can score two baskets first, at a cost of $699. The package also includes a photo with the Miami Heat champion, an autographed gadget and a set of photos from the match. You can also play against Andre Drummond (for $299) and Anfernee Simons (349). There is also an opportunity to challenge them in a skill challenge or have lunch together. Places for these experiences with Butler, however, are sold out for 2023. Registration is still open for his late August camp in Florida, where you can participate as a player (at a cost of $349) or as a cheerladers ($119).
