For many aspiring NBA players, the G League is the first stop on the way to the big time.

Orthodox basketball star Ryan Turell took a major step toward accomplishing his goal of playing for the NBA.

Turell made his NBA’s G League debut, the organization’s minor league division, playing for Motor City Cruise.

For many aspiring NBA players, the G League is the first stop on the way to the big time. Being drafted means Turell is eligible to replace an NBA player on the injured list, and could even be called up to sub in for a lackluster performer. Turell could become the first Shabbat-observant NBA player!

We are very proud!
