“It’s really rewarding to have a platform where guys can be seen and get to the next level in their careers. We enjoy making a positive impact in the community and a lot of the younger generation looks up to these young men and see sports as an outlet and the business of basketball for the players and coaches is something that teaches some life lessons and builds a fraternity of like minded individuals that helps us prepare them for opportunities after their playing careers. We really want to help some of these high level athletes to take their games to the next level with the PBA and open up some doors to opportunity Globally in the Sport.” Tim Slums – Owner – Texas Tsunami
