SUVtv will host its inaugural NBA Draft Day Coverage with Rashad Phillips live stream powered by CBA Sports on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Featuring one of the most authentic perspectives in the basketball space, the draft show will include breakdowns & analysis on the incoming wave of talent and the potential impact for NBA teams.
Dubbed years ago as “the best player never drafted” by Kobe Bryant, Rashad Phillips is the all-time leading scorer at the University of Detroit-Mercy with 2,319 points. Affectionately known as “Yoda” given his player evaluations and spot-on predictions, some of Phillips’ most notable assessments include his draft ranking of Trae Young as well as his January 2019 statement that the Toronto Raptors would be in the NBA Finals. “I’ll give the viewers my excitement for the game, in depth analysis of the prospects and how their games will translate to the NBA” says Rashad Phillips.
The Draft Day special will be the first-of-its-kind featured on SUVtv - a grassroots basketball platform that specializes in broadcasts and original content from the youth to professional level. “Our coverage is geared towards maximizing the value every segment of the basketball community gets from the content we create - that’s an easy deliverable with the expertise and viewpoint Rashad brings”, says Marques Burnett, Founder of SUVtv. “There’s a range of on-air destinations where viewers can spend their NBA Draft night with, but none will be quite like what we’ll have on the screens of those who join us.”
The SUVtv Draft Day Coverage crew will also include Darryl Labarrie and Matt Mahony with special appearances by Lewis Preston, Joel Hillsman, and select call-in guests. “Collectively, the playing and coaching experience of Rashad, Coach LaBarrie, and Coach Preston combined with the media presence of Matt and Joel makes for a great crew to enjoy and dissect this year’s draft”, adds Burnett.
In addition to streaming live on theSUVtv.com, Twitter and Facebook, SUVtv’s NBA Draft Coverage with Rashad Phillips will also be available on the SUVtv app on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, and Android TV.
