So I was reading about Ben Gordon most likely waving the peace sign to the Chicago Bulls real soon, which isn’t shocking at all. But there was something else that caught my eye:
Gordon spoke at the "Bowling Bash and Celebrity Fundraiser" thrown by his New Life Foundation in Yonkers, N.Y. The event was seeking to raise money for the sports department at Mount Vernon High School, Gordon’s alma mater. The school, which has a vaunted basketball program that’s produced several NBA players, is in danger of losing its winter and spring sports teams.
Philadelphia 76ers forward Elton Brand, Charlotte Bobcats forward Emeka Okafor, UConn coach Jim Calhoun, rappers Irv Gotti and Heavy D and former world boxing champion Iran Barkley were among the celebrities in attendance.
Just a simple clarification I’d like to throw up for the folks at ESPN after seeing this last paragraph. Irv Gotti, as much as he fits the “image”, is not by any means a rapper. Have a good weekend, Virgin Festival review TODAY.
