Hoops 4 Hope is changing lives.

Anyone that truly loves this game knows that it’s about so much more than big names, big contracts, or even wins and losses. Such a reality has not been lost on Hoops 4 Hope, the non-profit organization that works with kids in South Africa and Zimbabwe. Improving these kids’ jumpers is a privilege, but improving their lives is certainly the priority.—Adam Fleischer

    I’m from Africa so I know what it is ! These people are doing something great. Giving direction and dreams to kids who have to deal with a pretty hard reality…
