The season is 10 weeks of high-quality basketball in a dynamic environment. The energy on the court is consistent throughout the episode as you can hear the crowd and game in the background. Chris discusses the importance of developing his brand and maintaining his concept of quality over quantity. Skinz League only accepts the best teams of top-performing players ranging from high school, college, former and even current NBA players.
