NYLiberty.com’s "Family Feud" - Erin Thorn

Being part of a team has it perks. Even though you’re away from your family and friends for a considerable amount of time, you have a built-in system, courtesy of your team-mates and coaches. The Liberty spends a lot of time with one another on and off the court during the summer. So NYLiberty.com is on the case to investigate as to whether it’s a player’s real family or seasonal one, which knows them best. In this edition, we put Jodee Gardine, mother of shooting guard Erin Thorn, head to head with her daughter’s teammate and roommate on the road, foward Shameka Christon.

Let’s see who knows Erin like a book …
