FROM BASKETBALL TO BOOKS: Digicel-NBA Jumpstart coach, Bob MacKinnon Jr, who is also head of the Texas Legends basketball team in the USA, got the full attention of these youngsters at the Bustamante Hospital for Children on the weekend while reading to them the short tale, ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’. The visit was in commemoration of Read Across Jamaica Day today. Coach McKinnon made the stop after completing an intense training and mentorship session with a select group of Under-14 and Under-16 male and female high-school basketballers at the National Arena. They are participants in the 2018 Digicel-NBA Jumpstart Basketball Series. Digicel also made a donation of books to the children’s library at the hospital.
