SC, US, April 5, 2023/Evertise–The Hamilt0n Brand (THB) CEO Anthony Hamilton, Jr and THB President Elliott Charles today announce the formation of The Dunk Collective (DunkCollective.com), a multi-year initiative focused on bringing exposure to professional dunking, establishing scoring for the sport and championing stronger community connections between basketball and its increasingly diverse fanbase. Charles will serve as the General Manager of The Dunk Collective.

In the coming months, The Dunk Collective will recruit female professional dunkers to join the group. The collective will also establish community-based partnerships and will announce a schedule of live events to take place across North America.

“Each of these dunkers has an amazing story to tell. Some have overcome incredible obstacles to get where they are today. Others have brought meaning to their life and the lives of others by reaching for what seems like the impossible. We want to showcase the strength, artistry, and showmanship of this highly influential group, while bringing their loyal followings along for the ride through live events, exclusive social media content, fan meet and greets, and more. With the formation of The Dunk Collective, we expect to see a transformation in how professional dunking is viewed and valued in professional sports,” Elliott Charles said.

“We want to grow the professional dunker community,” Charles added. “In Year One, we welcome potential partners, brand ambassadors, and communities that want to be a part of this movement.”

The Hamilt0n Brand and the Dunk Collective’s current partner list includes sporting goods and apparel company Wilson Sports, apparel and e-commerce company BlueChip, design agency Jim Vranas Design Co., and brand communications agency Bond Studios.

“Since I was a kid, playing basketball at the highest level was always my goal. With the journey I’ve been on, I began to realize that there is not only one road to the highest level, and we are creating more inroads for the next generation, and beyond, to be able to surpass the ceiling that we as a group surpassed.

I’ve seen, met, and have built a relationship with every guy on the roster, and with knowing each guy’s unique individual story, it drives me just as much to build a common successful space for the community, my peers, partners, families & friends across the world with The Dunk Collective.”

The potential for what we can achieve together is limitless and I can’t wait to see what opportunities this collaboration brings.”

“My plan with the Dunk Collective is to change the dynamic of what an athlete is and what they are worth in terms of value to the community. I want dunkers to be looked at as professional athletes whose time and service is valued as such. I want to not only inspire future athletes but also let them know that anybody can do big things with your talents through social media without settling.”

I feel like the potential that the collective has is crazy! We have all the top dunkers in the world from all sides of the world with their own sense of style. To be able to bring a group of people with that following and skill together is unbeatable. Want to shoutout Anthony, Elliott & Joshua for bringing this all together! I’m glad I’m able to be a part of something bigger than myself and grow with like-minded individuals with such talent. Can’t wait to see what the future holds.
