What's The 411TV correspondent Crystal L. Henderson attended Allan Houston's Father Knows Best 5-Borough Basketball Tour, which was held at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Ms. Henderson spoke with Allan Houston about the purpose of the tour and his commitment to giving back to the community through his charity. Allan believes that his work is Godly and that it is an extension of what he learned from his parents. Allan's father not only coached him in basketball, but he also coached Allan in life.

The gymnasium, packed with mostly fathers and their sons, did have mothers and daughters and even girls making up co-ed basketball teams. The kids played basketball, held shoot-out competitions, Allan Houston showed off his skills, and everyone interacted with Allan on the pillars of FISLL, Faith, Integrity, Sacrifice, Legacy, and Leadership.

Crystal interviewed Noel and Jayden, a father and his son who traveled from Long Island to attend the event in Brooklyn, they talked about how they became involved with Allan Houston's Father Knows Best program.

Jay Sugarman, Founder, Jay and Kelly Sugarman Foundation, talked about his involvement with Allan Houston's charity. Ten years ago, Jay started, with friends and a few celebrities, the iStar Charity Shootout at Madison Square Garden to bring attention to four charities. Father Knows Best is new to iStar Charities, but Jay likes the mission and his helping to bring the tour to New York City's five boroughs. He plans to wrap up iStar Charities' activities with a 10-year anniversary celebration at Madison Square Garden.
