The company cracked a partnership deal with Stephon Marbury. Seth and the two co-founders hoped that with the partnership deal they could achieve big in the sneaker business. Later, they shifted their focus to a market that eventually gave rise to the AND1 Mixtape tour and the AND1 streetball mixtapes. The company surprisingly reached new heights of success over a decade through conducting several ingeniously marketed campaigns. Along with selling the company’s merchandise, they also sold out the popular mixtapes.

Soon, the company had many partnership deals with foot locker and footaction companies. The company also featured many streetball players which became an essential aspect of AND1. The company started facing a downfall after its primary competitor, Nike, who occupied a massive amount of the market share came out with a commercial, Nike Freestyle. Nike’s commercial eventually created a problem for AND1 and fed off what the company had built its core consumers around streetball.

Along with that, AND1 failed to create favorable relations with players, who openly feud and called out the company for the obscurity around their paychecks. The company was finally sold to American Sporting Goods in 2005. Besides AND1, he served as the CEO of HoopsTV.com from 1999 to 2001. Seth in fact helped the company to increase $15 million in finance for the business and launched a site for basketball fans all around the world.
