Living The Dream

Rockets and Budwesier team up for fantasy basketball camp

Mike Maloney

HOUSTON, TX - On Fat Tuesday, the families and friends of Budweiser executives were treated to an ultimate fantasy experience.

Taking a break from school and work, players of all ages walked into the locker rooms of Toyota Center and were greeted by personalized jerseys and festive ornaments.

Once everyone divided up into teams of five, players took to the hardwood and competed in an array of challenges. With a 3pt shoot-out, dunk contest, and obstacle course, it was almost as if NBA All-Star weekend were getting an early start. 

Luis Scola and some of the Rockets Power Dancers were on hand to take part in the festivities, signing autographs and trying their hand in a few of the events. Trophies were awarded to the best performing teams and competitors.

After working up an appetite, guests enjoyed a lovely dinner with a raffle serving as their dessert – giving some the opportunity to win autographed Houston Rocket memorabilia.

As the gracious group departed the arena, a few half-court shots were taken, and lasting memories were made.
