Throughout his basketball career Andrew had a special place in his heart for the city of Edmonton. After his final season with the University of Alberta Golden Bears, and on the eve of the beginning of his professional basketball career, Andrew and co-producer Babafunso Alakija created a tribute video to Edmonton and to all of the teams Andrew was a part of from 1996-2008. This mixtape/documentary includes candid interviews with Edmonton streetball and college legends, as well as exclusive highlights from Concordia University men's basketball team, The University of Alberta Golden Bears, and the NBA Hoop it up tournament. This 2008 mini-doc is a five part mini series jam packed with dunks, crossovers, alley oops, chase down blocks and clutch threes.

Between the legs, 360, free throw line, A.G.P made his name in the game of basketball by defying the odds, and defying gravity. Starting with slam dunk competitions on the streetball courts at Londonderry Junior High School, and then travelling the world, the dunk was a skill that A.G.P honed for many years.
Andrew's first stint playing basketball overseas was on a team called CityBasket in Recklinghausen Germany. Andrew had a great season with this team, playing alongside his Golden Bears Basketball team mate James Hudson in 2008-2009. Many Canadian players received their first professional basketball opportunities in Europe and this was Andrew's first experience playing Basketball in Europe as well.
For 4 years Andrew was a professional basketball player for the Edmonton Energy Basketball Club. This team featured some of the best USports players, former NCAA players, and NBA G League All-stars. In 4 seasons the team made it to the IBL Championship, held numerous division titles, and in 2009 Andrew was heralded as the first ever IBL Slam Dunk Champion (his award was presented by NBA superstar, and high flyer, Shawn Kemp of the Seattle Supersonics) during the IBL playoffs in 2009. This would be the first time a Canadian basketball player won this title, as there were only 2 Canadian teams in the league during this time. Multiple players including AGP enjoyed fruitful professional basketball careers overseas as a result of playing in this highly competitive American/Canadian League.
After a long basketball career starting at the age of 11, Andrew finally retired from Basketball in 2013, during the last season of the Edmonton Energy Basketball Club. Clips in this video feature highlights from AGP theme nights held by the team, where fans, team mates and community members from North Edmonton were gifted with free tickets to celebrate the long standing career of AGP.
