Terrell Owens Is Trying to Play in "The Tournament," $2 Million Winner-Take-All Basketball Event
By Jason Lisk
Terrell Owens has a player page on The Tournament‘s website (h/t: Jeff Goodman). The Tournament is a winner-take-all basketball tournament where the winner gets $2 million this year (up from $1 million last year). Our Jason McIntyre profiled the event last year.
It’s increased in popularity, and at least one famous athlete from another sport is now trying to get in the field. It’s not automatic. The field is limited to 64 teams, 16 from each region, and fan voting plays a part in who gets in (in addition to the defending champion from each region, and some at-large selections).
Owens, who played at Chattanooga, is listed as a 6’2″ shooting guard sporting his familiar #81. The team he is listed with, CBA, also includes former California player Lamond Murray.
