Kevon Looney, who plays for the Golden State Warriors, was humbled Friday to take the first shot on a new court that was only a dream when he was just a little kid.
“They always talked about the Running Rebels getting a gym. For it to finally happen and for me to be the first to shoot on it — it’s crazy,” Looney said.
Way before Looney wowed the crowds at Milwaukee Hamilton, caught the eyes of the pros early in his UCLA days and signed with the Warriors, he played on a Running Rebels team, starting in second-grade.
“Milwaukee is a a rough place to grow up. Running Rebels is an escape to become a better person,” Looney said.
