#BLACKWOMANMAGIC - TWO BLACK WOMEN Become FIRST TWO WOMEN To JOINTLY OFFICIATE NBA GAME!!!




CCG CONGRATULATIONS goes out to NBA Referees ANJELICA SUFFREN and DANIELLE SCOTT for on Tuesday, July 3, becoming the FIRST TWO WOMEN To EVER JOINTLY REFEREE An NBA GAME!!!

Tuesday, July 3, 2018, during an NBA SUMMER LEAGUE 2018 game between the LOS ANGELES LAKERS and MIAMI HEAT was the very first time in NBA History for two women to referee the same NBA Game, and; BOTH were BLACK WOMEN.

ESPN: The UNDEFEATED Senior Writer MARC J. SPEARS tweeted;
First time I’ve ever seen two black women referee an NBA game of any kind. Violet Palmer would be proud Danielle Scott and Angelica Suffren reffing at the California Classic Summer League Lakers versus Heat. @TheUndefeated 
HUFF POST: SPORTS  reports;
Retired NBA Referee VIOLET PALMER broke the NBA’s gender barrier in 1997 when she and DEE KANTER were hired. Palmer was the first woman to officiate an NBA game ― on Oct. 31, 1997, between the Vancouver Grizzlies and the Dallas Mavericks. She was also the first woman to ref an NBA playoff game ― between the Indiana Pacers and the New Jersey Nets on April 25, 2006.  
VIOLET PALMER retired from the league in 2016.
