Eastbay and Nike teamed up to provide an inside look at some of the best young up-and-comers in the game. These players are the stars of tomorrow, and we wanted to get a behind-the-scenes look at who they are, where they’re from, how they got here, and how they plan to reach superstar status.
We’ll roll out exclusive glimpses into the lives of Zach LaVine, Jewell Loyd, Ben Simmons, Breanna Stewart, and Aaron Gordon over the next 10 weeks, showcasing the work they’ve done to get to this point, as well as the work they will have to do to reach their future goals.
We dive into how their childhood basketball experiences shaped them into the players they are today. We looked at their biggest motivators to see what pushes them to strive for stardom. We asked them about their eating habits, pregame rituals, and training regimens, as well as things like their mental approach to their game, their goals, and their expectations. Stay locked to our social channels (including snapchat!) for more on these rising stars in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, check out a sneak peak of what’s to come. Here’s one of our videos with Minnesota’s Zach LaVine.
