Ambassadors open doors.

Ambassadors not only help us communicate the value of bringing an NBA team to the Commonwealth — they also help communicate the value of having a team in Kentucky to the NBA. Your financial contribution to the NBA2LOU effort will go towards the organization’s marketing efforts to gather support for bringing professional basketball back to Kentucky from NBA decision-makers, business leaders, legislators, basketball fans, and citizens of the Commonwealth. The more ambassadors we have, the harder the NBA will listen, as your support shows we have a sizable and engaged fan base. There are also plenty of perks to be had when you join.
