Does it get much better than this?
The Long Island Nets flew to Indiana Wednesday to prepare for a game Friday against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Their Brooklyn colleagues are also in Indiana to face the Pacers. And while both teams celebrated Thanksgiving together on the road, Ronald Nored’s charges may very well have had the better time.
Let him tell it...
One of my favorite thanksgivings to date. Although I couldn't be with my wife, our team flew into Indy today for a game in Fort Wayne, IN tomorrow. Instead of driving to Fort Wayne we stopped by my grandmothers house for Thanksgiving dinner. My grandmother worked hard to accommodate us amongst many family members. Thankful I got to be with my family and share my family with our team. Special thanks to my grandmother, Delores Kennedy-Williams for all of her hospitality.
That’s a lot of turkeys and stuffing for some growing boys. If you’ve ever seen Egidijus Mockevicius up close, you know of what we speak.
The coach’s forethought got some kudoes from his team.
You're a heck of a coach, but man what a guy!! Thank you so much coach Ron for letting us join your family for thanksgiving! @ronaldnored— Beau Beech (@beaubeech02) November 24, 2016
And a “you’re welcome” from the coach...
(The team photo also gave us a hint that Boris Dallo —he’s the one with the nose bandage— seems okay after Wednesday’s collision.)
But to answer our initial question, Does it get much better than this? No, it does not.
