Hisense helps you feel the joy of the game. Watching sports at home on a Hisense TV or projector will do a great job of approximating the intensity and emotion of the stadium experience. They bridge that gap between stadium-watched vs. home-watched sports events with remarkable cutting edge technology like the new QLED Mini-LED screens. Enter this contest and you might be one of the two winners of a new Hisense 55″ 4K UHD HDR QLED Mini-LED Smart Google TV. In addition, you might win the ultimate sport experience: a trip for two to Indianapolis for the ultimate in fun, enjoyable sporting events, the 2024 All-Star game.

Hisense TVs are built for storytelling

Few of us get to experience our favourite sporting events at the stadium. Oh, you might get to attend a handful of games in a season, but mostly, we watch them on television. On a great TV, like the newest models from Hisense, we can do more than just watch sports—we can experience them. Hisense is one of the first TV brands to incorporate amazing Mini-LED technology for brighter colours and deeper blacks than previously possible. Quantum Dot displays have been around long enough to prove how great they are for displaying amazing colours. However, with Mini-LEDs the TV is capable of more selective control of the brightness.

We recently published Shelly’s review of the Hisense QLED Mini-Led TV (part of the prize for this contest), and she discusses the brilliant display, the intuitive operating system, and many other features. From that review you can tell that it is great for anything you watch, including sports. The action in games like basketball is fast and intense, and the players, coaches, and even the fans in the crowd are living their dreams each and every game. On a great TV, like the one we are giving away in this contest, you can see it on their faces; you can feel their intensity, feel their passion, and feel their pain.

The NBA, like all sports, is more than a collection of games to be won and lost. They are a collection of amazing stories. Each game is a chapter in each player’s journey, and contributes to each team’s legacy. These amazing stories become part of our lives. We fans continue to tell these amazing stories over and over. From the rumours about draft picks to the final bell of the championship game, these stories captivate us, motivate us, and very often inspire us. And the best players, like those you will see at the All-Star game, continue to inspire us long after they stop playing.

NBA All-Star game is a celebration of the joy of sports

You might have guessed from the first section of this article that I am a sports fan. I attend games in person when I can, but love watching sports at home too. And I have tons of joyful sports related memories: from a fun Kamloops trip while playing basketball in high-school … to welcoming the NBA in Vancouver. These joyful sporting moments are a part of me—part of my personal story.

I would love to attend an All-star Game for many reasons. First of all, travelling to and experiencing the host city during All-Star weekend would be magical. One of my favourite sports memories was attending the first regular season game of the Vancouver Grizzlies in Vancouver in the mid 1990s. I watched every other televised Grizzlies game that I could … and loved it despite having a small, terrible TV. The crazy thing about the 2024 All-Star game is that I might actually get to see some of my favourite players from back then. Obviously, I would get to witness the amazing talents of the best of the best currently playing. But I would also get to see some of the best from the past. If I could win this contest (and I can’t since I’ll be selecting the winner!) and get to travel to Indianapolis for the All-Star game, I would hope to get to see the greatest Pacer ever, Reggie Miller. Now that would be a very joyful sports story.

  1. My best sports memory is going to a baseball game with my fiancee. Steph Curry is who we would like to see!

  2. My favorite sports moment was at the Junior Hockey Championship where my husband had the chance to shoot for a million dollars. I’d love to see Michael Jordan.

  3. I won the regional Shot Put when I was in high school, I wasn’t expected to win so it was a big surprise. I would love to see Fred VanVleet, he is so friendly and seems down to earth, even if he is not a Raptor any more.

  4. My favourite sports memories are definitely watching my son’s sheer joy while playing many different sports. Over the years he’s played baseball, soccer, basketball, football and hockey and he loves them all. I’d love to see Stephen Curry!

  6. I’ve never felt more sports joy than watching Lebron James win his first Championship with the Miami Heat against the OKC Thunder. I’m a huge fan there was nothing like this moment. If I were lucky enough to attend the All Star game I would be very very excited to finally see Lebron James live in person.

  11. One memory I love was going to a hockey game with my dad for the first time as he introduced me to the world of sports. Being able to return the favor all these years later would be a dream! It would be amazing to see LeBron James at the all star game!

  12. I have two favourite sports memories, both involving my boyfriend. The first is going to a Blue Jays game in Toronto together early in our relationship and eating hotdogs, drinking beer and enjoying the game. It was the first time I thought to myself, “Hey, I think I actually might enjoy the live experience of watching sports”. My other favourite was taking him to see the Lakers play at the Crypto.com arena, and watching his whole face light up as he saw Lebron James come onto the court. It had been his dream for years to see him play before he retired and just to see how pumped he was I thought “Ok, I definitely LOVE watching basketball live!” The energy and excitement in the arena was unreal, even if the Lakers ended up losing the game.

    I would love to see Lebron James at the All-Star game (obviously with my better half) and if his team could win the game, well THAT would become my new favourite sports memory.
