The Golden State Warriors weren’t the only team elated from its Tuesday night NBA Championship win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Overland Park-based ShotTracker also snagged a win alongside the Warriors’ first championship since 1975, as the wearable tech firm’s recent endorsement deal with Golden State guard Klay Thompson received another coat of varnish. Golden State’s championship win offers ShotTracker another wave of publicity ahead of the company’s virtual basketball camp with the sharpshooting Thompson, starting June 21.
“We are very excited about the Klay Thompson partnership — we couldn’t ask for a better partner at a better time,” ShotTracker COO Davyeon Ross said. “This virtual camp is the first of its kind, and it’s always nice to be part of the first of something.”
Campers using ShotTracker’s wearable tech that tracks shot attempts, makes and misses will have a rare chance to interact with and learn from one of the NBA’s best shooting guards, Ross said. Participants will receive an email from Klay each morning with a workout for the day. The workouts are the same that Thompson and his trainer, Charlie Torres, perform each day, Ross said.
In addition to working out with Thompson, campers have a chance to win prizes such as Thompson-autographed basketballs, shoes, jerseys and pictures.
To use a ShotTracker, ballers slip a sensor into an armband or sleeve, stick another sensor on their hoop’s net and then download an iOS app. The app allows one to create workouts, track progress and challenge friends to competitions.
