The Texas-based company will be designated as the official motor fuel partner of the Celtics, an official partner of the Hornets and an official partner of the Rockets and their Toyota Center home.
“We are excited to partner with three outstanding NBA franchises and to announce the launch of our 2018 NBA Finals sweepstakes,” said Eric Carmichael, ExxonMobil’s global commercial marketing manager. “Like the performance the Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets and Houston Rockets deliver every game, our products are meticulously engineered with ingredients that work together and draw many parallels to the teams' synergy on the court.”
Both the Rockets and the Celtics are enjoying standout seasons, with the former leading the way in the NBA’s Western Conference and the Celtics sitting second in the Eastern Conference. The Hornets, meanwhile, are tenth in the Eastern Conference.
