This Sports Network Is Trying to Uncover the Next Superstars Through Viral Videos

Overtime is a digital media network best known for their viral videos of rising basketball players like Zion Williamson, Zaire Wade, and Bronny James.

To date, the company has raised $35 million, including investments from NBA stars like Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony, and former commissioner, David Stern.

Overtime doesn’t track scores or stats. Instead, they focus on building the personal brands of promising players – ones with as much personality as skills on the court.

VICE News followed Overtime in action while covering one of their biggest finds: Jada Williams, a 14-year-old from Blue Springs, Missouri with impressive shooting accuracy and ruthless, ankle-breaking handles.
