Houston, TX and Atlanta, GA (BlackNews.com) — Shavewise(TM), a startup focused on the $3.6 billion U.S. men’s grooming market (Statista), today announces its first celebrity sponsorship deal with TV host, radio analyst and former NBA sharpshooter Dennis 3D Scott. The company, which offers the most effective shaving system for men who suffer from shaving irritation, identified Scott as the ideal person to promote the Shavewise brand because he understands the transformative confidence a man gains when he is well-groomed. That feeling starts with a clean-shaven face.

Certain careers and vocations require a clean-shaven face. Shavewise(TM) enables men to start their day with a great shave that feels good and helps them look their best. Dennis understands how life-changing that can be for a person. So hes the perfect person to promote the brand and help sign other celebrities who want to be a part of this movement to change lives.”
Dennis Scott is an NBA legend and current TV and Radio Analyst for Turner Sports (NBA-TV) and TNT.

He spent time with Orlando, Phoenix, Dallas, New York, Minnesota and the former Vancouver Grizzlies franchise. Scott also hosts a late-night show on 790, called “3-D’s After Dark,” and is the former General Manager of the American Basketball Association’s Atlanta Vision.
