About a year ago, we added Bounce to the Dime family. Bounce is the ball player’s magazine, for anyone who loves to play the game – whether that’s in a gym, in a driveway, or on a playground. Anywhere with a hoop and a ball.
We want you to get to know Bounce, so we’re hooking up all our Dime readers with an exclusive $5 dollar price for a subscription. We asked Bounce Co-Founder and Hip-Hop, sneaker, and hoop legend Bobbito Garcia to write our readers a letter breaking down the essence of Bounce. Check out Bob’s letter after the jump and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE and take advantage of the $5 offer, which expires October 4th.
In 2003, a crew of us sat down at my kitchen table and founded Bounce Magazine, the world’s first and only publication strictly dedicated to covering grassroots basketball. We saw that the media was giving it burn, but no one was doing it consistently or wholeheartedly from a ballplayer’s perspective. Our mission was to change that. And we did.
Grassroots includes pick-up runs, practice drills, summer leagues, camps, and AAU. It happens in the streets, playgrounds, schoolyards, parks, driveways, and steamy gyms. If you are like us, it also occurs in your imagination and right down in your heart. We aren’t sportswriters. Our staff plays, coaches, and organizes on all levels. We are blessed to have an outlet to share the experiences with you.
Through our first 12 issues, Bounce has steadily kept the pulse of New York City, the Mecca. We’ve also let our readers in on the scene in six continents. (If there’s a 3 on 3 going on in Antarctica, please let us know!) We changed an age-old industry standard by shooting our covers outdoors. We’ve let you know who the top streetballers are, which sneakers perform best, how to avoid injury, what to work on to improve your stats, and where to play. We’ve also equipped your mind with the rich history of our legends so that you’re aware of the legacy you’re upholding when you put a jumper up with D in your grill.
We are proud of what we represent. We welcome all of you to indulge, but don’t spend too much time flipping pages. Ultimately, we’re only trying to inspire you to play . . .
Bobbito Garcia, Co-Founder
