The TBT is an annual, 64-team, single-elimination tournament for a winner-take-all $1 million prize. Games take place in July & August and air on ESPN and ESPN2. This event provides players and opportunity to showcase their skills in the States, in an effort to make or return to the NBA. This includes former first-round NBA Draft picks and, for the first time, frontline NBA prospects. But beyond that, many of these teams find themselves playing in support of important causes, like Defeat Diabetes. There are squads representing a variety of foundations, including those for ALS, autism, cancer, mental wellness, and muscular dystrophy.
