We take a look at Grayson Boucher aka The Professor’s net worth in 2022 after Untold: The Rise and Fall of AND1 drops on Netflix.
The latest addition in Netflix’s Untold sports documentary series is here with Untold: The Rise and Fall of AND1.
AND1 was extremely popular among basketball and sneakerheads alike in the 1990s and 2000s, rising to become one of the biggest basketball brand in America.
Netflix’s documentary, which drops today (August 23) chronicles how a graduate school project partnership between Jay Coen Gilbert, Seth Berger, and Tom Austin became the AND1 brand, and how, ultimately, it fell.
The Professor features in AND1 documentary
Untold: The Rise and Fall of AND1 features a number of brand ambassadors and streetball legends such as Hot Sauce, Skip 2 My Lou, The Main Event, and Shane the Dribbling Machine.
However, perhaps the most famous streetball player to appear in the Netflix documentary is The Professor, aka Grayson Boucher.
How Grayson got involved in AND1
AND1 as sportswear brand started specialising in basketball shoes in 1993. Later, they would start making apparel, and as part of their marketing would give away mixtapes featuring streetball players doing stunts.
The AND1 Mixtape Tour, presented by AND1 and featuring streetball legends, soon spawned. Essentially, the tour featured a group of streetball players who would travel from town to town and challenge teams composed of local talent.
Grayson, from Oregon, attended the AND1 Mixtape Tour when the team stopped in Portland for a visit and wound up earning a role on the team.
A year later he was given a contract and featured heavily in AND1’s world tours, as well as multiple mix tapes, DVDs, and commercials.
