“For four years we’ve built MTN DEW Courtside Studios during NBA All-Star Weekend as a way to give fans a taste of how DEW celebrates hoops culture. Chicago is a major basketball hub so this year DEW is bringing it bigger and bolder than ever with a special nod to Chi-town flavor. We partnered with iconic Chicago characters like Don C. and NBA hall of famer Scottie Pippen to give fans inside access in a way only DEW can.” – Erin Chin, Senior Director, Marketing, MTN DEW.

“Courtside Studios is where basketball culture and fandom collide in the most Instagramable way. Our NBA and WNBA athletes are the personification of the MTN DEW brand ethos. They’re bold and badass and they bring these basketball fans memorable experiences that they can’t get anywhere else during NBA All-Star.” – Charece Williams-Gee, Head of NBA & Hoops, PepsiCo.
