Announcing the Slam Dunk Winner of the Cisco ūmi “Meet an NBA Legend” Sweepstakes

- July 11, 2011 - 5 Comments

Last month, we partnered with the NBA to give our online fans and followers the opportunity to enter to win the chance of a lifetime – meet NBA legend Bill Russell Jetson-style on home telepresence system Cisco ūmi. In addition to a conversation with Bill, participants were also entered to win a ūmi telepresence system, plus one year of free service, for them and a friend! We’re excited to announce Chris P. from Los Angeles as the winner of our Meet an NBA Legend Sweepstakes! We’re looking forward to a great conversation between Chris and Bill.

Wondering what questions Chris is going to ask a twelve-time All-Star Champion? Here is one of his questions “What was the driving force that helped you win 11 NBA Championships and 2 NCAA Championships?”

Like Chris, we are also giving our online community the chance to come up with a question of their own for Bill. Comment on this blog post with what you would like us to ask him on behalf of our online fans and followers. We’ll select the best one and let you know how Bill responds.

After the sweepstakes meet and greet, Chris can access his video messages with the new Cisco ūmi mobile app, available now for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Android devices! This new feature is an easy way for ūmi subscribers to access their video messages and recorded videos on the go.

Thanks for entering and don’t forget to check back in on Facebook and Twitter for future promotions!

  1. What are your favorite charities?

  2. Of all the Celtics you played with who was the best 'basketball player'? My guess Is John Havlicek (and not only because he "stole the ball!)"

  3. "Where did you get you the discipline you exhibited for the sport, in an era where being the greatest athlete, just wasn't enough?

  4. After all those seasons you worked hard and played in the NBA, could you say that you and your body are happy?

  5. If you could describe your career in 3 words, what would they be?
