Texas Legends Draft Party 2018
Raise the roof for a successful 2018 NBA G League Draft!
Saturday, October 20th, our CEO Mark Wariner and “Life According to Tiff” show host, Tiffany Swartz attended the Texas Legends Draft party at Strikz Entertainment in Frisco, Texas along with Legends die hard fans!
Let’s set the stage: It’s noon, all the coaches and Legends staff are in place. The fans begin to pour in, families with their chlidren, and die hard basketball fans are ready to see the 2018-19 draft party begin. Strikz has a room designed and ready for the Legends to call the room a “War Room” for the next few hours.
As everyone was free to come and go, Legends welcomed the fans, provided food and refreshements and set the stage for what is coming thgis season. Around the room, one by one, all the coaches spoke who they are and how long they have been with the team. A few moments later Coach Bob MacKinnon talks about the season coming up. Malcom Farmer, the Legends President also speaks to the fans and introduces the 2019 Texas Legends Basketball players. Even owners, Donnie Nelson and Evan Wyly also attended the event.
Fans took pictures with the coach, the players and even the Texas Legends “Next Step Dancers“. See our gallery below.
Like last year, this will mark the 2nd year for the 2-player rule from the NBA. Two-way players are full NBA players though they spend the most of the season within the NBA G-league. This season, the two-way players have been announced. Forward Kostas Antetokounmpo from Athens, Greece and guard Daryl Macon, from Little Rock, Arkansas will play this year. The Dallas Mavericks was the first team to use this new rules from the 2017 season. They were able to use Jonathon Motley and Jalen Jones from the previous 2017 season.
Who’s ready for the season to start? The Legends will hit the road on Saturday November 3rd for their first two matchups of the season before hosting the Salt Lake City Stars in their home opener Nov. 9th at 7:30pm. For tickets or information call 214-469-0822 or visit www.TexLegends.com.
