Great App! Better person!

Ron has done an exceptional job developing this app! I’ve witnessed the entire process from start to present day and he has came a long way. At first, it was simply just a way of finding out where people are playing basketball and now it has evolved into an app where INTERACTION is key! NBA featured scores/updates, arcade games that are fun, messaging between users and more! Check it out! It’s worth it seriously!!!!
