Las Vegas, NV- Vegas has a well-deserved reputation the world over as a city known for having unparalleled -and endless- entertainment options, but Bleacher Report managed to accomplish the unthinkable and outdo themselves (and for that matter, anyone else) in partnering with Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas to host their 3rd Annual B/R Jump Off Event on Saturday, July 13th. With a star-studded lineup, the truly fan-friendly event literally had something for everybody, as the immersive fan experience included an unbelievable dynamic collection of Bleacher Report exclusive experiences, Instagram ready photo opportunities, B/R Kicks giveaways, celebrity dunk contest and horse competition, and a three-on-three hoops tournament jam-packed with celebrities, tastemakers, and well-known social media influencers.
The Bleacher Report B/R Jump Off had the whole city- never mind just the Strip- buzzing and put together the event of the summer so far in the city that never sleeps. The reaction from the countless NBA players taking a break from NBA Summer League who made it a point to make sure they were in attendance is proof.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Bronx, New York’s own A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie took the stage at the end of the night and tore the roof off the venue with his unique brand of a high-energy stage show.
The star-studded event was literally, the hot ticket and the place to be, as hundreds actually had to be turned away and denied entry as the star-studded event reached capacity in less than an hour, and saw countless high-profile names from the sports, entertainment, and influencer worlds in attendance, including former NBA Champion JaVale McGee, Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown, emerging media maven Taylor Rooks, in addition to Youtubers and social media influencers like the self-proclaimed backyard Legend Marcelas Howard, impressionist impresario BDotADot, J Clark The Jumper, Ronnie 2K, Austin Mills, Crissa Jackson, Amieya Jackson, Omar Raja (the visionary behind the wildly popular House of Highlights Youtube channel), ESPN personalities Bomani Jones and Michael Smith, and half of the Boston Celtics summer league roster.
It must be said that even among all those notable big-names no one star shined brighter than the incomparable quadruple threat Brittany Lucio, who stole the show on more than a few occasions with her deft touch and smooth delivery on the court, and likely won over a few more fans- if that is even possible for the wildly popular star and team captain of the LA squad in the Beautiful Ballers basketball league- with her approachable personality and friendly demeanor and graciousness, as she was one of the last people to leave the building since she seemingly did not turn down a single picture or autograph request.
The night also featured the debut of the new House of Highlights Arcade, described as the “ultimate destination for fans to enjoy the thrill of competition in a dedicated game zone, as well as live studio programming, special guests, and delicious treats from a customizable sundae bar, and many other prizes.
By the end of the night, the only thing that anyone lucky enough to attend this year’s event wanted to know was- when and where is next year’s B/R Jump Off?
