Right now, Sprite is looking for the best amateur players in the world to compete in their “Uncontainable Game” at All-Star Weekend 2013. As luck would have it, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are leading the search and will coach the teams that will face off in Houston.
“Sprite is teaming up with six NBA players – Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers)
and LeBron James (Miami Heat) from the U.S., in addition to Andrea Bargnani (Toronto
Raptors) from Italy, Al Horford (Atlanta Hawks) from the Dominican Republic, Omri
Casspi (Cleveland Cavaliers) from Israel and Serge Ibaka (Oklahoma City Thunder)
from the Republic of Congo – to discover 24 amateur ballers who will represent either
Team Sudden or Team Intense in the Sprite Uncontainable Game™ at NBA All-Star
2013 in Houston.”
To herald in the larger competition, we’re hosting a smaller one of our own. We were lucky enough to be gifted with this sweet, special edition Uncontainable Game briefcase and, instead of keeping it to ourselves, we’re giving it away to you.
The aluminum briefcase includes:
— Powerbeats by Dre earbuds
–a COBY Snapp HD Digital Camcorder
— an Uncontainable Game jersey and t-shirt, Sprite sweatbands, an Uncontainable travel bag and a Nike basketball pump.
In order to win the Uncontainable briefcase, you’ll only need to follow these two, easy steps.
1. Follow @Sprite @TSSCrew and @JohnGotty on Twitter.
2. Tweet the following message: I just entered to win a @Sprite #Uncontainable briefcase courtesy of @TSSCrew @JohnGotty #RMF http://bit.ly/UncontainablexRMF
We will run the contest until Thursday, September 6. Then, we’ll close things off and pick a winner. The more times you tweet the message or the more RTs you get, the greater your chances of winning!
Below, we’ve included a trailer announcing the Sprite Uncontainable Game plus footage filmed in early July showing LeBron James and Kobe Bryant making a surprise appearance at UNLV where the early winners in the Uncontainable Game program had planned a practice game. James and Bryant used the opportunity to select the captains of their respective teams who will compete Friday of NBA All-Star 2013 in Houston.

UPDATE 9/6: Thanks to everyone who participated. We’ll start reaching out one or two people as potential winners, giving them 24-48 hours to respond before moving on to the next people on the list. And watch out for more giveaways to come!
* – Winner will be limited to the U.S. only. We love our international visitors, but shipping a heavy briefcase overseas costs a little too much.
