Team Atlanta Wins the 2014 South Beach Invitational (PHOTOS)

by August 20, 2014

This past weekend in Miami, BACARDI Flavored Rums and the EBC sponsored the 2014 South Beach Invitational, a streetball tournament in which six teams from five cities—two from New York (one coached by French Montana, the other by Jadakiss), and one from L.A., Miami, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta—squared up for a $25,000 prize. The 2 Chainz-coached Team Atlanta ended up taking it, winning with a squad that featured high-flying two-time NBA champion Shannon Brown. “We wanted to end our summer down here, like a little vacation, but doing something that no one ever did by putting a court right on the beach,” EBC founder/CEO Greg Marius told us. “It was successful. There were some things that we learned, but we’ll make it better. We’re going to keep attracting more people from the different cities to come and make it a vacation.”

Roll through photos of the weekend of games and events in the gallery above, and below check out the recipes for the six cocktails BACARDI Flavored Rum created for the six different media outlets that covered the tournament.
