Shaquille O’Neal pays tribute to Lusia Harris
Shaquille O’Neal and Steph Curry made a venture that spotlighted the incredible existence of Lusia “Lucy” Harris. The film, coordinated by Ben Proudfoot, focuses on Harris’ basketball brilliance, which began in school, where she won a treble at Delta State University.
A top school player at the time, she also became a singles player on the United States women’s basketball team that won silver at the 1976 Olympics. The Olympic occasion was exceptional, as always when women’s basketball was presented for the first time at the games, which take place every four years.
After her actual school job, Lucy Harris played for the Houston Angels in the Women’s Basketball League. After her sizzling execution at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, she achieved another feat by being drafted in the 1977 NBA draft. The New Orleans Jazz picked her in the seventh round to stun NBA chiefs and fans.
Tragically for the basketball world, “The Queen of Basketball” was pregnant at the time and failed to recoup the original investment with another notable feat. Many of her achievements were unusual, but most basketball players didn’t know about her.
The basketball gods were finally looking positive on her as her life and outstanding brilliance were revealed by NBA greats Shaquille O’Neal and Steph Curry.
