Fresh on the heels of the naming of Attorney-at-Law, James Bond’s team for next Saturday’s ‘Respect the Game’ Charity Basketball Showdown at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall where Division I and national players will team up with local celebrities, Team Toney has announced the opposition.
Team Bond will play Team Toney, a compilation from Journalist, Rawle Toney, in what will be an entertaining grudge contest for the Respect Trophy. The celebrity-hyped event will bounce off at 7pm with a High School match-up.
The University of Guyana takes on Qualfon in the second game before the national and Division I players team up with local celebrities, professionals and entertainers for a basketball rivalry for several charities of choice.
Team Toney has drafted national guard/forward, Akeem ‘The Dream’ Kanhai (Ravens); guards Dominic Vincente (Ravens), shooting guard, Shelroy Thomas (Colts), Kester Gomes, Stephan Gillis (Pacesetters); forwards Randy Richardson (Pacesetters) and ‘big-man’ Shane Webster (Colts) to ward off Team Bond.
Meanwhile, to support the seasoned players, Team Toney has enlisted Compton Babb (‘Respect the Game Inc.’), Lugard Mohan (Former National Point Guard/Coach/FIBA referee), Carey Griffith (Proprietor Wind Jammer International Hotel), Pernel Cummings (Courts Guyana Inc. Marketing Manager), Ronald Grogan (Canada), Nerissa Pearson (98.1FM), Robert Adelson (US Embassy Public Affairs Officer) and Joel Simpson (Founder-Director SASOD).
The event is a call out to all sportsmen and women to return respect to the game, whatever your game may be; whether its the arts, sports, business or professional sectors, ‘Respect the Game’ is geared toward returning ‘respect’ to society using what it believes to be the one forum that brings people together, which is sports.
