Spalding sponsored an "Arena to Driveway" competition on Facebook that awarded one fan of their Facebook page with a brand new Spalding basketball hoop, a rack of basketballs and a chance to play Miami Heat star point guard, Mario Chalmers, one-on-one.
Brooklyn, NY resident Carlos Mayorga won the competition by submitting a picture of his dilapidated backboard to Spalding, who decided that he was in the biggest need of a court upgrade.
Carlos Mayorga got what he wanted. A new basketball backboard and a chance to play with an NBA superstar, and Bleacher Report got what they wanted—an interview with Mario Chalmers.
Ahead is a breakdown of Mario Chalmers' interview with Bleacher Report's NBA Featured Columnist, Peter Emerick.
