A lot of people are surprised when I tell them I used to play basketball competitively. Sadly, my career ended before it really began in high school, when my knee decided it was time to quit. On the bench, but not completely off the court, I took on a management role, tracking stats and traveling with the team. Now my love of basketball and Crown Royal, have led to an exciting partnership!
Drum roll please….I’m thrilled to announce, Crown Royal Canadian Whisky has entered into a partnership with the NBA, and In Deep H2O is excited to announce our participation in the first-ever Crown’s Center Court influencer program comprised of NBA specific team writers from across the nation. For the rest of the season, Crown Royal and I, will be bringing you stories, photos and videos of Houston’s home team the Houston Rockets, as they Reign On the courts.
Tonight the Rockets face the Lakers, and with key Lakers’ players on the bench due to injuries, the home team has a shot at a W. Lakers’ players, Kobe Bryant (left knee), Steve Nash (back), Steve Blake (torn ulnar collateral ligament), Xavier Henry (right knee) and Jordan Farmar (left hamstring tear) aren’t a threat tonight. Rockets’ Greg Smith and Chandler Parsons have both been recovering from knee issues (I can relate), and are game time decisions. I’m hoping James Harden dominates the score board, posting over half our points, and Howard can finally break double digits with rebounds.
Are you excited? Well, you should be, because you’ll have the opportunity to see exclusive content, and win Crown Royal NBA swag. (Readers 21+ are eligible, don’t shoot the messenger, it’s the law) Uber cool swag includes NBA pocket squares, Crown Royal new era hats, socks, etc. Be sure to follow #ReignOn for all the on and off court action this season.
For Crown Royal, to Reign On is to win, and we want you to Reign On responsibly this NBA season.
