The Boys & Girls Club Organization is very important to me. When I was growing up I spent a lot of time at places like Boys & Girls Clubs. These safe havens were a home away from home for me. Boys and Girls Clubs are a great place for kids to learn and grow. My Foundation and I are proud partners with BGCA!!!
I have a special place in my heart for the Boys & Girls Club in Joy Park; not just because I have the honor of it baring my name, but because I remember dreading having to play basketball games there. We would be walking up with coach saying, “Do we really have to play here?” It was not a place kids were excited to go.
Today I am proud to say that has changed! The Joy Park Community Center was transformed into a full-feature clubhouse, servicing between 40 – 60 great kids each day. These kids are monitored by a highly trained and devoted staff who feed them a healthy snack and a hot meal. I love stopping by and checking in on the kids. Last time I was there we shot hoops!
All-Star weekend is a special weekend for me. It is special because I am chosen to participate by the fans. I am continually humbled by the support of my fans. In preparation for All-Star, my Foundation and I work with my partners at the Boys & Girls Clubs of America to do something meaningful for a Club in the All-Star city. The best part for me is that I visit the club and spend time with the kids on Saturday after my NBA commitments.
