New York, NY, January 31, 2024 – The NBPA, through its partnership and innovation engine, THINK450, announced the debut of its NBPA Brotherhood Deli fan pop-up shop at All-Star weekend this year in Indianapolis. Presented by Chase Freedom, the NBPA Brotherhood Deli is an immersive retail experience that will be open to the public from February 16-19 at the Circle Centre Mall on the 2nd floor (units E15-E16). First launched on the concourse of the Thomas & Mack Center in the summer of 2023, the NBPA's Brotherhood Deli pop-up shop gives fans an opportunity to shop and discover brands founded by, invested in, respected, or endorsed by NBPA members.

During All-Star weekend, the NBPA Brotherhood Deli will feature player appearances, daily happy hours, giveaways, and an all-new collection of limited-edition merchandise. As a free-to-enter experience, the NBPA Brotherhood Deli also provides a unique blend of shopping, entertainment, and community, allowing fans to get up close and personal with their favorite players and connect with the brands they love. 

As part of the NBPA Brotherhood Deli experience in Indianapolis, THINK450 will expand the shop with a hidden speakeasy. Accessible within the Brotherhood Deli pop-up shop, the speakeasy will host a Las’ Lap-curated cocktail experience and feature McCollum Heritage 91 Sparkling Blanc de Blancs. There will also be exclusive programming at this hidden speakeasy throughout the weekend, including a private preview, wellness sessions powered by Peloton, an NBPA Post Up conversation with Matt Barnes and special guests, and evening DJ sets.

"Our goal is to unite the basketball community in celebration of NBPA members and their passions off the court," said Que Gaskins, President of THINK450. "The NBPA Brotherhood Deli is more than a pop-up shop; it's truly a destination where the basketball community can come together in a welcoming environment and engage with our members in an authentic manner."
