And They Said Launching a Sports League is Crazy

Mar 14, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Today’s amateur basketball system doesn’t work for everyone, asking players of their time, their bodies & their minds. We're flipping that on its head with a transformative new sports league, OTE, which offers the world’s most talented young basketball players a better pathway to becoming professional athletes, focusing on player development, education and economic empowerment. Each athlete will receive a guaranteed minimum salary of at least $100,000 per year, plus bonuses and shares of equity in Overtime. Join Overtime’s President and Co-Founder, Zack Weiner, OTE Commissioner and President, Aaron Ryan, along with an OTE brand sponsor and player, as they discuss how to go from proof of concept to execution and what the future of basketball may look like.
