NBA Cares Special Olympics Unified Sports® Basketball Game Recap

NBA Cares Unified Basketball Game 2015

As one of only 12 Special Olympics athletes, Special Olympics Louisiana’s own, Jacob Majors was chosen to participate in the fourth annual NBA Cares Special Olympics Unified Sports® Basketball Game, as part of this year’s NBA All-Star 2015 in New York, on Saturday. For the very first time, Special Olympics athletes played at New York’s Madison Square Garden – The World’s Most Famous Arena.

Jacob Majors’s unforgettable adventure in New York included participating on a Special Olympics Unified Sports basketball team with current NBA and WNBA stars and past NBA Legends. In an extremely close game, Team East (grey jerseys) emerged as the winner of the game!  Team West got out to an early lead, up 32-24 at the end of the first half, but Team East quickly picked up speed, to emerge victorious, with a nail biter final score of 58-56.  It was a very well-played game.
