HADDONFIELD, N.J. (WCBS 880) — Some basketball-loving 9 year olds were disappointed when their elementary school talent show was canceled last month due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

After practicing for months, the third graders from Haddonfield, New Jersey were planning to show off their basketball skills by doing some tricks inspired by the Harlem Globetrotters.

“Their talent show was supposed to occur the week we were quarantined,” says mom Katie Gorman.

“I just felt this year wasn’t the time. Maybe next year,” her son, Max, said.
