While this year’s NBA Finals may have ended in four games, it was a special one for many servicemembers in Southwest Asia.

As part of the NBA Cares’ Hoops for Troops program, WNBA great “Mighty” Ruthie Bolton, who played her entire career with the Sacramento Monarchs, helped in bringing a special experience to troops.

The NBA’s Kevin Martin as well as coach Monty Williams also took part.

As part of the event, troops were coached in a basketball game, and attended a USO NBA Finals party which included a live look-in on ABC during the Game 4, which turned out to be the closer as the Golden State Warriors won their third championship in four years.
