BULLETS HOST SECOND MEMORIAL BASKETBALL GAME 

​When he played basketball at Allderdice High School with his friend Marcus Robinson, Deion Nesbitt’s nickname was “Meatman.” Even years later when the two worked as counselors and developers at the Homewood YMCA, or when Nesbitt played football with the semi-pro Pittsburgh Jaguars, he was still “Meat” or “Big Meat.”


​​That is why, after learning of his friend’s shooting death at the Phase III bar Feb 17, Robinson began plans to memorialize his friend. He did so with a charity basketball game between the Pittsburgh Bullets, a developmental team he founded four years ago, and members of the Jaguars team.​And despite terrible weather, the community responded with an enthusiastic crowd enjoying the game, honoring Nesbitt.

​​“It was an overwhelming response. I was very pleased. Deion was a close friend, and just a great guy,” said Robinson. “We retired a jersey for him, and I’ll be using that as part of a memorial for him here at the Y so people can remember the heart and sweat and work he put into this building and into the kids of Homewood.”
