Pick-up Basketball with Jamaal Magloire

The gym at John Innes Community Centre was basketball central on the evening of August 31, as More Moss Park hosted a pick-up basketball session featuring Toronto Raptors assistant coach Jamaal Magloire.

A Toronto native, Jamaal played 12 seasons with the Charlotte Hornets, Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers, New Jersey Nets, Dallas Mavericks, Miami Heat and the Toronto Raptors. In 2013, he became an assistant coach and team ambassador for the Raptors, a role which includes engaging in community relations and promoting basketball development among the city’s youth.

Moss Park ballers gathered with Jamaal to talk about what basketball means to the Moss Park community, and then shot some hoops for the rest of the evening.

A big thank you to Jamaal for coming down to JICC to talk all things b-ball!
