But anyway, it gave me an idea. I have a group of guys, this community, that doesnít watch basketball and doesnít play basketball and doesnít really care about basketball, but they like video games and know me from that.

MLG was having an online tournament and these 14- and 15-year old kids usually had to scrounge for money to get the money to enter the tournament. They donít have a ton of loot. If their XBOX breaks, theyíre putting it in the freezer to fix it. You know, the old school, ďMy batteries ran out, letís put them in the freezer to charge them back up,Ē move. They do that. So, I decided to pay the entry fee for anybody who enters, plus I added to the prize money. Instead of $50,000 prize money, itís $100,000 prize money to the winner. So any kid who wants to play the tournament, all you have to do is go to MLGPRO.com and sign up. The only thing you have to do for me is go to NBA.com and vote for me for All-Star.
Nothing like bribing a bunch of little kids.
