Inspired by a question NBA Champion Steve Smith asked during an interview with LeBron James, we created the #NBARushmore digital product on NBA.com, enabling fans to create their own "NBA Rushmores." In addition to the all-time Rushmore, we developed sub-categories to generate engagement and facilitate discussions. The franchise featured a digital hub and sponsored extensions across linear and social.
