The New York Times on Harlem Ambassadors suing Harlem Wizards

Back in February, I blogged about the Harlem Ambassadors suing the Harlem Wizards over the Wizards allegedly "stealing" one of the Ambassadors' players - LaMarvon Jackson, who averaged 1 point per game at the University of Arkansas Little Rock, but who is apparently a star "entertainment show basketball performer." Though coveted by two teams, Jackson reportedly earns $60 per game (which typically generates at least $4,000 in revenue), with a $20 per diem when out on tour. Small numbers, perhaps, but the requested damages in the suit exceed $73,000.

Ken Belson of the New York Times has an extensive piece on the lawsuit, and I speak with him for his story.

I am currently a semi-pro football football player in Glens Falls and after a number of disputes between myself and the owner he and I both decided we did not want to associate for the 2012 season. He informed me that upon paying an 150 dollar fee I would be released but upon learning I would be going to a rival team he told me he would not. Does this qualify as a verbal agreement and what can I do to switch teams and continue my effort to go to a pro team? Thank you for your time and consideration. Ican be best contacted by email at darelletaylor31@yahoo.com or my Facebook Facebook.com/primetimedefense. Thank you again for your time advice and patience
