Some ideas I would look at when you create basketball products:

  • Specific products for coaches and parents to help teach, with step by step playbooks
  • Niche relevant designs on jerseys/balls etc (memes, luxury patterns, photogetic for content)
  • Small teams & players with cult followings could have fun fan merch 

 

Opportunities in social and ecommerce

  • Running “challenges” that would look particularly cool with a specific product (night content for instance)
  • Quizzes and contests to drive email signups for top of funnel
  • Themed store drops for parts of season
