Player Testimonials

Frequent and transparent communication is the key for us to build longterm relationships with our players
I have been working with Jan and Blacktop Management since 2020 and during this time I have built a strong relationship with them. Our open and honest communication has helped me to improve my game on and off the basketball court. For example, we have talked a lot about career planning and building my own brand in addition to basketball related stuff. And the best thing is that Jan and Ville are always available for their players by calling or texting. I am looking forward to improving step by step and keeping Blacktop Management by my side for many more years!

Joining Blacktop back in 2017 really helped me gain the experiences I had been looking for in Europe for quite some time. I can’t thank Jan enough for pushing my career to new levels and can honestly say he’s the best agent I have had. He is always been there whether on or off the court issues, I appreciate him as a brother for life! Even after retirement I know we will continue to work together as well as have a life-long friendship!

Signing with Jan and Blacktop Management going into my rookie season turned out to be the best possible decision I could have made. Jan has been through it all with me and has never let me down. He went above and beyond even in my toughest times as a professional player and worked tirelessly to make sure I always ended up in the best possible situation. With his complete honesty, constant communication, and positivity Jan really makes you feel as part of his family and I look forward to having him with me for the rest of my career. He truly is more than just an outstanding agent, but also a great friend. Loyalty over Royalty!”
