Staying true to their mission the Young3 Staff put together by the BIG3, once again teams up with Nancy Lieberman's Dream courts to impact the youth of Charlotte, NC. Champions Basketball Network writer Liam Blutman was on the scene and his write up of the event can be seen below.
As a wise man named Ice Cube once said, “Today was a good day.” The date of June 29th, 2019 attests to that simple statement by one Ice Cube. For it was on that day that legendary Nancy Lieberman donated yet another Dream Court to a fortunate city. The city in this week's spotlight was Charlotte right out here in North Carolina. And the court being refurbished was at the Naomi Drenan Recreation Center, a beautiful, and ever so improving rec centerwith sincere hopes of bettering the community. This was truly the perfect marriage.
Young3 members: Jerome Williams, Johnnie Williams, Josh Williams, Eric “Broadway” Jones, Charles “Choo” Smith, Bryan Burrell, Lamar Lundy, and myself, Liam Blutman were here assisting. Unfortunately, Nancy and the BIG3 couldn’t be present today due to the BIG3 games being played early this morning. It was indeed a pleasure to help them out and we made sure the youth of Charlotte had a blast. In total there were 60 kids in attendance. That’s 60 kids getting out of the house, being active, making friends, and loving on the wonderful game of basketball. These kids got to soak up life lessons in addition to playing basketball. We are excited in anticipating that that this experience will go a really long way for these kids and hope they cherish it for years to come. Jerome proclaimed that, “The history of basketball here in North Carolina is great, so many college basketball teams are here, and I can tell that the youth is super invested with this great sport.”
All in all it was an incredible day here in Charlotte, North Carolina. We can’t thank the kids enough for showing up and hope they had a fun and memorable experience. Big shoutouts to Nancy Lieberman and the BIG3 for making this happen! Dream Courts are an amazing way to make the community a better place and let the kids know that they are loved.
