iBall Announces New Camp, Tour, and Tryout Ratings Portal for Pro Basketball Prospects World-Wide

basketballexposureratings.com logo ibuFounded by former professional basketball players, iBall United takes pride in the opportunity to give back. iBall camps and professional services are dedicated to assisting players to build and sustain successful careers in the sport of basketball.   BasketballExposureRatings.com is aligned.

The New Rating Portal allows players, personnel, and other participants to share and analyze honest feedback from personal experiences at camps, tryouts, and tours held around the world.

“In a short amount of time, we have found that every ‘exposure opportunity’, and I use that term loosely, is not created equal.  Players deserve a real forum to rate and share thoughts on the quality of their experiences,”  said Howard Brown, iBall Founder and Chairman.  “The best camps will benefit from players and staff having exposure to what makes them special.  The poorest camps will either get better, or get out the way.”

BasketballExposureRatings.com is one of the many ways that iBall United will continue to help players unmask and maximize their best opportunities to live out their dreams of playing basketball at the professional level.

iBall United has another special announcement planned for early summer. Stay tuned!  But for now, learn what others are saying about the opportunities that you are considering at BasketballExposureRatings.com

iBall United is committed to build and sustain professional careers of basketball players around the world. For more information on how iBall can do the same for you, visit our website at http://iballunited.net.

He’s Not Your Daddy. He’s Not Your Agent. He’s Your College Coach.

20120217_inq_sbimps17-aIts starts when we’re young.  Somebody takes us by the hand, puts a ball in it, and teaches us how to do really cool things.   Sometimes they put us in line. Sometimes they put us ON the line.   But they give us so much knowledge, leadership, guidance, confidence, and most of all, the opportunity to do what we love.. and that’s play basketball.

They’re our coach.

Everyone’s had a really good one (I hope).  The ones that went out their way to care.. and to help us win even when it wasn’t related to the game of basketball. These aren’t coaches.  These are Continue reading

Jon Hart Signs with Aspire Sports Management

jon-hartJon Hart (6’4 G/F, Mount Olive, NC) took a big step forward towards his dream of playing professional basketball overseas by recently signing with Aspire Sports Management. The former star of the Barton College Bulldogs is a two-way guard with skills that can fit well within many systems and playing styles.  In his senior year, he averaged 13.4 ppg and 8.4 rpg.  But what separates him from his peers is his ability to defend all wing positions while being an explosive force on offense.  His range also goes as far as the NBA 3-point line.
