Lee Stars in Special Edition of Family Feud
In a special sweeps-week promotion that will air from Monday to Friday, the long-running game show underwent a basketball make-over. Over the course of one off-season week, six NBA stars went up against their mothers in the "NBA Players vs. NBA Mothers" showdown. Together, the teams raised $65,000 for NBA Cares' community partners.
"This was an amazing opportunity for our players to take part in a fun experience with their mothers and at the same time give back to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and KaBOOM!" said Josh Wachs, NBA Vice President, Community Relations.
On the NBA team, Lee was joined by fellow stars Grant Hill (Phoenix Suns), Chris Bosh (Toronto Raptors), Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic), Cuttino Mobley (L.A. Clippers) and Richard Jefferson (New Jersey Nets).
In a true comedic moment not to be missed, Lee faces off against his mother, Susan, to find out what the "Survey Says."
To celebrate these shows, the "Family Feud" set was overhauled for a special basketball look. The NBA Mothers' portion of the set was decorated around a "living room" theme featuring NBA "DreamSeats" and a special NBA Live 08 game broadcast from Electronic Arts. Additionally, a separate "basketball court" area was installed on the set complete with an NBA 54-inch Backboard System, NBA game balls and an NBA Ball Truck.
