ST GEORGE’S, Grenada, Feb 5 – Former Miami Heat basketball player Brian Grant took time out this week to shoot some hoops with a group of young Grenadians at the newly refurbished River Road basketball court.

After a great career in basketball, playing for teams including the Los Angeles Lakers, Portland Blazers and Phoenix Suns, Grant retired from the game in 2006. As a personal friend of one of the investors in the company undertaking the luxury development at Hog Island and Mount Hartman, Four Seasons Private Residences Grenada, he is planning to buy a property and is on a visit to Grenada to learn more about the beautiful location.

Grant was welcomed by Brenda Hood, Minister of Works, who was representing her own Ministry and the Ministry of Sport, as Roland Bhola, Minister of Sport, who was out of the island.

Grant gave an informal training session to a group of keen girls and boys from the local area, finishing up by giving them all signed photographs.

Grant was interested and pleased to learn how popular basketball is in Grenada, and that there is currently an Inter-School basketball competition being played, with a total of 18 schools taking part.
