Robinson Cano Wins Back New York Hearts with Awesome Celebrity Hoops Showdown

Lance Fresh@@LanceFreshFeatured ColumnistAugust 22, 2014

Robinson Cano left the New York Yankees to join the Seattle Mariners, but that didn't stop him from holding his joint charity event in Brooklyn with friend and former teammate CC Sabathia. Cano's RC22 foundation and Sabathia's PitCCh foundation held a celebrity charity basketball game at the Barclay's Center raising $1,040,000.

Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony were honorary team captains. I played alongside Terrell Owens, Rapper Fabolous, DJ Khaled and more representing Team Cano. Chris Brown led all scorers with 23 points for Team CC.

I caught up with CC and Cano to discuss their love for New York and the game of basketball.

And yes, of course our team won by 2 points! #TeamCano
