Music Mogul Master P is changing the dynamics of Basketball with his GMGB league
Music Mogul and Sports enthusiast Master P is leading the way for gender equality in sports with a mixed-gender pro basketball league. He hopes the expanding Global Mixed Gender Basketball league, which was founded by businessman James Scott in 2013, will provide opportunities for more pro players. Miller pledges that the league will pay women the same as men. There will be two women on the court at all times, he said.”There are some great female basketball players on a professional level that are just as good as men,” Miller said. “But we never see that.”
Miller said it will “change the game when you see that they really have some women who can compete with men. That’s what we’re going to get out of this league.”
In addition to leading the league, Miller will also be the owner of his hometown team, the New Orleans Gators. At this time, the league has two other teams: The Washington, D.C. Fusion and the Atlanta Heirs.
Miller said that the first glimpse the public will have of the Gators will be on Sept. 23, when the team will play an exhibition game against the Atlanta Heirs in Las Vegas. The game will be televised, he said, so potential fans can “see how it works; see the whole format of the league.” Details will be announced later, he said.
When the Gators begin playing in New Orleans, they will occupy the Smoothie King Center and the UNO Lakefront Arena, Miller said.
