"There's not much out there, connecting pro basketball players to fans, like BCI Courtside Live. Even though we're role models, we don't get a lot of opportunities to make that count in a meaningful way. For a player, BCI Courtside Live is all about stepping up to get real about life in front of a worldwide audience. For kids and fans, it's about real-time access and authentic conversation with role models who respect that role. The potential for this unique program - a recurring public chat with pros on topics that really matter - is electrifying."

-Mike Wilks, Former NBA Player/Current Scout for OKC Thunder

Fan Center

Welcome to BCI Courtside Live!  CSL is a series of online,real-time, interactive public events that connect professional basketball players to kids and fans around the world. This event features unprecedented access to players about the practical and spiritual aspects of life in the pros.
