Street Legends basketball in its 3rd edition

THE STREET Legends Basketball organisation has some noble but lofty goals for 2012.

Street Legends Basketball founder and president Wilton Russell intends to use his league to fight crime this summer in its third edition.

“For one - ‘Bridging the Gap’ is our theme. And I think the theme itself sets the tone for what our purpose is,” Russell said. “The reason I say this is because we unite these different communities... we get them together. And these are men we’re talking about. Bringing them together for one common goal.”

The Street Legends and Vitamalt Community Basketball Tournament’s third season continued at the Anatol Rodgers Gymnasium this weekend.
