Jews and Basketball: Red Holzman and Others Who Changed the Game
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Ira Berkow, Matthew Goodman, Jonathan Segal and Mort Zachter Did you know that Red Holzman, the only man to coach the Knicks to an NBA championship, was Jewish? So was his mentor, Nat Holman, the greatest basketball player of the first half of the 20th century. Unlike today, when Jewish NBA team-owners vastly outnumber Jewish NBA players, there was a time when Jewish players were ubiquitous in both the college and professional ranks. Award-winning author Mort Zachter will host a lively discussion about the history of Jews and basketball with former New York Times writers, Ira Berkow and Jon Segal, and bestselling author, Matthew Goodman.
