CHARLESTON, W.Va.— Basketball coach, businessman and gubernatorial candidate Jim Justice will be profiled on the NBA TV show Beyond The Paint tonight at 10:30 p.m.
“Matt Winer, the show’s host, will share the story of Justice’s life-long commitment to the game of basketball and the state of West Virginia to a national audience,” said a Justice spokesman.
“The focus of the show is the impact Justice has on his players and his community, and what he wants for the future of West Virginia. Tomorrow’s nationwide telecast isn’t just about Jim’s love of basketball, it’s about letting the rest of country see what the Mountain State is truly about— just like Jim did when he brought the PGA, NFL, and the NBA to The Greenbrier,” the spokesman said.
Justice coaches the girls and boys team at Greenbrier East High School where he has won almost 1,000 games.
“Jim has never cut a single player and has never had one of his players go academically ineligible. In 2012, Justice coached the girls team to a state championship title,” the spokesman said.
