SHOE GAME

NBA player retires to work for shoe company expecting to rep his own line of sports gear like LeBron, only to get the eSports account forcing him to embrace diversity with a long-time female rival as his boss.

Hustle, hard work and hitting the boards resulted in a two-decade NBA career for Tim Brown, who was solid but not a star. He went to work for the shoe company started by his team’s owner, expecting to rep his own line of sports apparel, like LeBron or Michael. Instead he was put in charge of the account for eSports, which he did not even know existed. His post-NBA existence now means embracing diversity and working with a long-time female rival as his new boss as his recent friend from eSports' Korean grandmother tries to marry him off !
