The National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) is proud to have Champions Basketball Network (CBN) join the organization as the official media partner.
The partnership between the NBRPA and CBN has given members the opportunity to work exclusively with the network and have their media content broadcasted across multiple platforms. In addition, it allows the NBRPA to have another distribution outlet for valuable content.
CBN has packaged content from numerous All-Star Weekends, Legends Retreat, and exclusive interviews with a prolific amount of current and retired NBA players. Some of the footage is currently highlighted at http://www.cbn.vegas
“We are so excited to continue our partnership with the NBRPA and attend All-Star Weekend Celebration in New Orleans for NBA Legends seeking a career in broadcasting,” said Williams. “Our three day coverage showcases former NBA players and other members of WNBA and Harlem Globetrotters during All-Star Weekend festivities."
