Who invited the big guy?
Coached by former NY Knicks star John Starks -- listed at 6'5" and 190 pounds during his NBA playing career -- kids in an after-school program run by SCO Family of Services in Bedford-Stuyvesant brought their A game to a basketball clinic on Thursday.
SCO partnered in the skills-building event with the Knicks and the Garden of Dreams Foundation, which works with The Madison Square Garden company to have a positive impact on the lives of children facing obstacles.
The kids, ages 9-14, attend an after-school Beacon program at MS 35 run by Family Dynamics, an SCO program based in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick, and Brownsville Brooklyn.
SCO Family of Services helps 60,000 vulnerable New Yorkers each year to build a strong foundation for the future. SCO has provided vital human services throughout New York City and Long Island for more than 100 years.
