Get an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at Spurs & other NBA teams
Written by Jeff Garcia on .
Ever wondered what life is like for an NBA team and its players from training camp, through the regular season, the playoffs and the NBA Finals? Want to know how to win a free NBA DVD courtesy of Project Spurs, Bombo and NBA Entertainment? Well wonder no more.
Tuesday, October 30, Bombo and NBA Entertainment will be launching "Wired: A Season Inside the NBA" giving fans an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at an entire NBA season. The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack gives fans exclusive access to practices, locker rooms, road trips, planes and bus rides for every team in the NBA, including the San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, New York Knicks, and Los Angeles Lakers.
Produced by Bombo Sports & Entertainment, "Wired" lets fans see and hear the league’s most celebrated superstars - ranging from Tim Duncan, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose - as they battle the ups and downs from training camp to the last game of the NBA Finals. Shot over the past three seasons, Wired takes fans inside training camp as each team prepares for the season and goes along for the ride as players hop from one city to the next while keeping focused on the next opponent. The access sheds a unique light on the human element of injuries, holidays, team bonding and the push to become a champion.
The folks at Bombo were kind enough to let me have a private screening of "Wired" and for Spurs fans, they will be thoroughly entertained.
From Duncan and Amar'e Stoudemire (when Amar'e was with the Suns) going back-and-forth on who will face Kevin Garnett at an All-Star game, former Spurs making cameos, a rare interview with Manu Ginobili at the 2007 NBA Finals to inside the 2011 Western Conference All-Star locker room where coach Gregg Popovich was leading the team and much more, I can assure Spurs fans, there is so much to soak in and enjoy for all Spurs fans.
Aside from the Spurs, the film shows just how intense Garnett can be, what NBA rookies have to endure, how focused Bryant is during the regular season, and funny moments such as what Glenn "Big Baby" Davis likes to eat for breakfast and Kobe eating steak out of a box.
Wired: A Season Inside the NBA Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack is available for only $24.99 on NBAStore.com and other online and DVD retailers next week Tuesday. It is definitely worth a buy Spurs fans.
Now for the good part, how can you score yourself a free copy? The contest is quite simple. I got my hands on few copies of the DVD and will have two winners chosen at random. Each will receive a free DVD copy of "Wired."
1. You must go on Twitter and tweet/announce your favorite Project Spurs article (or video) with the hashtag #iloveps (make sure to tweet it to @projectspurs as well) as soon as possible.
2. You must watch our next TV Show (WOAI-Project Spurs Sports Roundtable) and answer a trivia question on anything about the show I send on Twitter in the days following the show. Follow me on Twitter at @sa2ny2004. Also use the hashtag #iloveps when answering the question. Make sure to tweet it to @projectspurs as well. The video usually posts on Project Spurs on Sunday or Monday. Next show will be recorded this Sunday so be alert and keep an eye on my twitter account.
Do those two things and you will enter yourself in the contest. Feel free to enter as many times as you like.
But before you go check out the trailer for "Wired."
