Nassau Nets

While the show was filled with laughter and cheers as you can see in the video below, there was a petition being passed around to help put Lade Majic in the Basketball Hall of Fame. Known as The Queen of Show Basketball, she is possibly the first woman to coach and play alongside her male counterparts in show basketball. She holds a Master’s degree in counseling and rehabilitation, and works extensively with at-risk youths through her foundation, No False Evidence Appearing Real, Inc. (NoFearInc.org).

The Harlem Ambassadors scored more points than the Nassau Nets, but this never was about the score. Money was raised for a great cause and the Ambassadors were delightful to watch.
