Has Hot Sauce Left And 1 For Good?
Message boards throughout the internet are flooded with enquiries concerning Philip Champion – the man known to the world as “Hot Sauce” – and his status as an And 1 player. Some claim he is merely taking a break from the tour, while others state that he is now affiliated with the YPA. A third group believes him to be retired, and others still have their own theories concerning the whereabouts of the most recognizable streetballer since Skip To My Lou.
However, none of the above is strictly true. Sauce has, in fact, decided to part ways with And 1, and will not be returning for any subsequent tours, according to his agent, Mark Edwards. Similarly, other such big names as Headache, Shane The Dribbling Machine and Main Event are no longer associated with the company.
We can also confirm that Hot Sauce has not signed with the YPA, although he did take part in one of their All-Star games recently. He is currently focusing on the Streetball Invasion Tour, with plans said to be in place for another Killer Crossover Tour.
