According to Lawrence Moten, "the train never stops" with Syracuse Orange basketball. Once an Orange, always an Orange. And the school's all-time leading scorer stopped by TNIAAP to talk about all-things Syracuse as well as promote his upcoming meet-and-greet event in Los Angeles.
If you're in Southern California, make sure you go say hi to Lawrence on Saturday, June 1st at 6:30 p.m. at Busby's East (5364 Wilshire Blvd.). There will be giveaways (including signed copies of HTGAO) and there's a decent chance some other SU alums will be stopping by as well.
The venue also has pool tables, outdoor patio, $5 valet and street parking. Plus, it has a great and reasonable menu. There is a potential NBA East Finals, Game 6 as well at 5:30 PT, so it also may be a great place to watch the game .
This event is open not just to Syracuse alums. You are welcome to bring and tell all your friends. There will be no cover charge before 10pm. The place turns to a club atmosphere then and will have a huge dance floor.
Along with the Saturday event, Moten is also hosting a private Basketball Clinic and Pick-up Game on Sunday. Starting at Noon, a select group of SU fans will join Moten for a pre-game meal followed by warm-ups, a clinic and pick-up game. Afterward, Lawrence will host a Q&A over dinner at a local restaurant.
