WELCOME TO REBOUND!
SUPERSTARS like Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Alonzo Mourning, Lafayette “Fat” Lever, Bob Elliot, and George “Iceman” Gervin helped make the game of basketball what it is today. These icons teamed up with fellow former professional basketball players as part of the National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA). In 1992, the original founders: David DeBusschere, Oscar Robertson, Dave Cowens, Archie Clark and Dave Bing had a vision and brought this elite fellowship together and created the most powerful professional retired players association. The NBRPA, partnering with Sports Media Marketing LLC, created Rebound Magazine, the NBA Approved “Official Magazine of the NBRPA”.
Now enter the newest members, the WNBA. Teresa Weatherspoon, Cynthia Cooper-Dyke, Dawn Staley, Sheryl Swoops, Nikki McCray, Carla McGhee and Penny Toler make up the inaugural class of former WNBA players as members of the NBRPA.
