Master P Seeks To "Change The Game" With Coed Basketball League
Master P and Tameka "Tiny" Harris are helping to bring to life the Global Mixed Gender Basketball League.
Master P is no stranger to the court, after having played both college and professional basketball. And with his latest venture, the Hip Hop businessman is looking to literally change the game.
P was recently appointed president of the Global Mixed Gender Basketball League, and is also owner of the New Orleans Gators, a team from the league.
While speaking with NOLA.com the Limit Records founder revealed why it was important for him to work with a league that is not only one of the sexes.
"There are some great players of women's basketball at a professional level that are just as good as men," Master P said. "But we never see that...[Is] the change in the game when you see that they actually have some women that can compete with the men. That is what we are going to get out of this league."
