Mason Gordon

Mason Gordon is the creator and co-founder of SlamBall. Gordon envisioned a hybrid sport that combined the best elements from basketball, football, hockey, combined with an outrageous element of olympic caliber trampolines that take the action up to twenty feet off the game floor. In SlamBall, all these elements flow seamlessly together into something new and appealing for younger audiences.

Gordon constructed the first court in a warehouse out of discarded gymnastics parts. The resulting game is phenomenally-impactful, short-format, high-flying, and wildly competitive – generating sensational moments with a “did you see that?” viral appeal. Previously, Mason served as the President of Mandalay Sports Media, a best-in-class sports media company specializing in premium documentary storytelling. MSM is best known for award-winning landmark film, television, and streaming projects including The Last Dance (ESPN, Netflix), The Captain (ESPN), Redeem Team (Netflix), Stand (Showtime), Shaun White: The Last Run (HBO Max), and many more.

In that leadership capacity, Gordon produced, directed, and developed a consistently strong slate of high-quality projects, often incorporating a sports component to access deeper personal narratives.
