    Lushie has a true love for the game. I have seen this first hand growing up around her children and witnessing her with her grandchildren, friends, and her family members. She does not stop there but also reaches out to teach community members. She uses the game to not only inspires others but to teach valuable life lessons such as hard work, team work and perseverance. I have heard stories of her playing days and know she was something special. One of my favorite things is how she beats everyone in a shoot-out male or female. I think she for sure deserves to be recognized and I am very happy to see her name on this list.

    My mother-in-law beat me in basketball many times--who does that? She has excellent dribbling and shooting skills. What a way to welcome your son-in-law to the family.

    My Mom has always beat my homies in basketball. Who else has a mother that can hoop in there 40's and 50's with 11 children? For real skills!

  • Brian Watkins ll - 6 years ago

    My Mom stops her car in the middle of the street with her door open any time she sees a basketball rim in the street--she will shoot the young or the old out--sometimes for money. Mom has mad skills. My number 1 hooper!

  • Brittnie T. Watkins - 6 years ago

    Nobody loves the game like my mom. Nobody has more heart. Nobody can shoot the elbow bank shot like my mom. And most certainly, nobody can play a game of H-O-R-S-E like my mom. Thank you for all your lessons on and off the court.

  • Pacifica Watkins - 6 years ago

  • Mike Bradley - 6 years ago

    Only woman to come out in the middle of the street and out shoot a bunch of guys.. #goat

  • Karen Markel - 6 years ago

    LaChel "handles" people and her affairs, the way she handles a ball: directly, with purpose and force. This strong loving woman is receiving much overdo recognition!

  • Brody Watkins - 6 years ago

    Gramma Lushie is the best, best, bed. She makes long shots. She does trick shots. Gramma Lushie is my coach and she can hoop. I love her. LaChel Burton.

    My Mom is so good she beats men out of their money playing HORSE! She is my coach. She is my nephews coaches too. She is the best! LaChel Burton

  • Breanna Watkins - 6 years ago

    My Mom, LaChel Burton was the best basketball player in the city. She had the heart that no one else had. Actually, her goal was to play in the NBA. No there was no WNBA back then. She loved the game and she was good at it. She is the # 1 G.O.A.T. Of all times because she has heart--that can not be taught.

  • LaChel Burton - 6 years ago

    Thank you for this opportunity: I, LaChel Burton was the best ball handler and no look passer to go through Battle Creek Central--no doubt! However, Terri Walker could shoot the short jump shot and rebound over the elite. Evelyn Cantrell could shoot the 3 point shot and it was not around when we were playing in the late 70's. Mary Jean Cusic could also shoot the 3 and rebound. Sherrill Smith could both handle the ball and shoot the short jump shot in addition to my sister Thursa Burton. The late 70's was the best team thus far at Battle Creek Central. It was still excellent players in other classes: Mardreanna Reed, the late Sheila Wilburn, Shakoko Cantrell, Lori Mahar, Latoya Cooper, My daughters Dr. Brittnie Watkins, Breanna Watkins, Bridgett Canales, Tyesha Anderson--and many, many more. I love the game. I love everyone who played the game---I just know not another person had it in their heart like me--basketball was my life--that is why I consider my self the heart of basketball: I coach, I still play at 55 years old, my 12 children all play and played--I bleed basketball. Thank you.
