You ever think about those people who “win” the raffles, contests, sweepstakes? Are those actually winners? Is it possible for someone like me to win something like that? Yeah, I never really believed it, until I became a winner myself!
Got home yesterday with a package from FedEx (thank you for the safe delivery) and in it was an authentic NBA Pelicans jersey of Anthony Davis. Never in a million years would I ever thought that I would win a contest, let alone a contest on Instagram considering so many submissions.
A few months ago, I walked in with a buddy of mine to Gamestop and I saw the NBA 2K16 poster and figured I’d take a picture for the ‘gram. With the proper lighting, angle, filter, and hashtags, I was ready to submit for the NBA 2K #BeTheStory contest. Winner gets a signed jersey from one of the NBA 2K16 cover athletes, Stephen Curry, James Harden, or Anthony Davis. Since it was only Anthony Davis inside this specific Gamestop, I was given the autograph and jersey best player in the league (in a couple years) Anthony “The Brow” Davis.
As far as the NBA 2K game itself, I’ve recently surpassed 500 games while winning about 72% of them. If you were interested on playing a game, feel free to add me on PSN, “gdiejeff” is my handle. Just make sure to leave a message when you add so I know it isn’t random.
Check out the video as I unbox my package and see the joy light up from my eyes. I’ve never owned an authentic jersey before. I’m already searching the web for a display case for it. Thanks to the good folks at 2K and make sure to cop NBA 2K16 on September 29, 2015.
