Whether it's the Atlanta Hawks' Josh Smith wishing a fan a happy birthday, the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry thanking fans for their support or Houston Rockets' legend Hakeem Olajuwon reminiscing about a favorite Championship game, egraphs are as different and distinctive as the personalities of each NBA star.

"The NBA and its players are recognized as leaders in social media and for connecting players with fans," said David Auld, CEO of Egraphs. "Through our partnership with the NBA, we hope to develop a stronger relationship with basketball enthusiasts and bring them even closer to their favorite NBA athletes."

"My favorite part is being able to record a fun voice message that is unique and personable." Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Clippers agreed, "I can really put my personal stamp on an egraph in a way that I can't with traditional autographs or fan mail."
