Entry #13 - Aug. 4, 2009 - NBA Players Golf & Tennis

That Jam Session poster in entry #12 was one of many Nike organized get togethers from the early days.

One of the first Nike/Nike Athletes get togethers happened in 1975, when Nike took Elvin Hayes, Spencer Haywood, Rudy Tomjonavich, Alvan Adams, Phil Chenier, Charlie Scott, John Drew, Paul Silas, Lucius Allen, and Austin Carr out to Sunriver, Oregon to play tennis and golf. I guess eventually that grew in to the event described on this shirt?
