The 2016 NYC Masters BASKETBALL Xperience

Press Release July 2016
In August...All Roads lead to NYC!!


This will be the 2nd Annual Running of  
The NYC Masters Basketball Xperience, where 
slowly aging athletes have an opportunity to showcase
their wares in front of a captive, nyc, audience.

Last year we had a grand time as we witnessed Team
Canada square-off in the 3x3 Final against the Puerto
Rican Pro Legends in a classic 50 & Over match-up.
The Puerto Rican Pros pulled off a come from behind
victory in the championship.  Actually, the PR PRos 
were down [10-2] as the Canadians roared out of the 
starting gates.  The PR Pros recovered due largely 
the heroic play of veterans Wes Correa and Tony Diaz, 
two former pro's from the historic BSN League in 
Puerto Rico.  Wes Correa Highlights as BSN Pro
Tony Diaz in BSN Action 1978
So this year, my buddy Ted Laan, and Team Canada,
are returning to the Big Apple with the competitive
motivation of what they call "Unfinished Business."

Welcome to the 2016 New York Masters Xperience,
where day tours, Masters Hoops, and incredible
nights meet for the time of your life.
