#PressRelease Former Athlete Turned Entrepreneur Launches World’s First Portable Basketball Shooting Machine. #GRINDBasketball


FullSizeRender (1)

(Houston, TX – May 15th, 2020) Thomas Fields, Founder & C.E.O. of GRIND Inc., a sports technology and athletic equipment provider, recently announced the launch of “GRIND Machine”, the world’s first portable basketball shooting machine designed to enhance independent drill training- anywhere and anytime.

IMG_2032

 

The revolutionary shooting machine has been proven to be effective in improving players’ catch & shoot efficiency, footwork, balance, explosion and follow through, while increasing player creativity & basketball IQ.
GRIND Machine allows the player to shoot up to 500 shots an hour by capturing rebounds and automatically passing the ball back to the player at any given spot on the court- including the NCAA 3pt regulation range. GRIND Basketball is equipped with a 12-foot net around the rim that strategically forces players to put more of an arch on their shot, translating to a higher percentage of made shots. This technique in repetition aims to increase muscle memory.

Fields believes this might be the most innovative, yet ideal shooting machine ever designed – “You practice ten times more efficiently using the shooting machine, so it was important to design this for practical use. I wanted to build something that basketball players, coaches, and trainers would love, because they could use it wherever and whenever.” said (Thomas Fields, Founder/Ceo of GRIND).

Fully furnished, GRIND Machine seamlessly folds into a 4’x2’ weather-protective duffle bag, equipped with durable wheels for relaxed transportation.

 

Key Features:
● Portability at 48” L x 22” W x 22” H
● Weight: 100Ibs (equipped with wheels to easily transport)
● 500 shots an hour
● Manual 5 spot shooting
● Affordable (lowest market price with payment plan options)
● One-year complimentary warranty

Training Benefits:
GRIND has a NO STANDING RULE, the GRIND Machine uses one ball and forces players to work hard and smart, simultaneously.
● Move without the ball
● Catch and attack
● Make shots under fatigue
● Perfect the footwork
GRIND Machine is now available for pre-orders for delivery November, 2020. For more information, please visit GrindBasketball.com.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

THE FREDDY CAIN SHOW TO PREMIERE ON THE CW33 TELEVISON NETWORK

IMG_9553

The red-carpet, Gold Mic ™, entertainment series, “THE FREDDY CAIN SHOW” announces deal to premiere on the CW33 Television Network every Saturday, beginning October 19th, 2019

IMG_9756

(DALLAS, TX, October 18th) The Freddy Cain Show, hosted by the witty, engaging creative, Freddy Cain, announced today a deal with the hit television network, CW33. “The Freddy Cain Show” is an entertainment series based out of Dallas, TX,  covering red-carpet events, community human interests, and most known for securing compelling interviews with celebrities such as Kanye West, Teddy Riley, Snoop Dogg, Jerry Jones, Akon, Chris Tucker, Bobby Brown, and Nancy Lieberman, just to name a few. The show will premiere every Saturday, at 12:00PM CST, beginning this Saturday, October 19th, with the first episode featuring IBF Welterweight World boxing champ and Dallas native, Errol Spence Jr.

“I’m opening up a lane in Dallas that should have been done a long time ago. There is so much that goes on in the City of Dallas that everyone needs to know about.” said creative producer and host, Freddy Cain. “Featuring Errol Spence Jr. for our first episode made sense to me, since we took the city to Hollywood. He’s a champion, and I’m a champion and we’re both willing to take the hits for success. I want this to resonate with our viewers.”

Freddy Cain and Teddy Riley -“King of New Jack Swing”

 

In 2009, after 5 years of hosting red carpet events, Cain had a vision to produce his own TV show. While scoping The Green Sheet Publication for ideas, he came across an ad for a play “South of Where We Live” showing at The Jr. Black Academy of Arts & Letter. Cain attended the play and the casting party afterward, and that is when the ‘The Freddy Cain Show’ came into fruition.

“I met Carl Payne, “Cole” from Martin. When I interviewed him, I asked him to do the famous bird call. When he did…I looked behind Carl and the entire cast was lined up waiting for interviews; that’s when a light popped on.” said Cain.

Gearing up for the big screen, the red-carpet host and Gold Mic™ superstar Cain, hired recognized entertainment production company, SoloTV Productions, who will be responsible for curating the unique, innovative content that captures the viewers’ attention, along with PR Firm, Nina Zavala Group, and infamous television agent, Joe Courrege.
