Isaiah Thomas Opens New Gym for His Hometown Boys & Girls Club

Congratulations to All-Star Isaiah Thomas, Tacoma, Washington native and alumnus of Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound! Isaiah took a day during a recent West Coast trip to head home and cut the ribbon on a brand new gym and to celebrate the moment with family, friends, and the kids of Tacoma.

His trademark as a fearless competitor is a running theme in the building, but not only with the large-scale “Pick Me Last Again” images on the walls. There's also a thick purple line that stripes the gym on every wall – at a height of 5'9” – as a reminder to Tacoma youth that they can achieve what others might think impossible.

Branch Director, Sierra Raynor also thanked the NBPA Foundation, saying, “This definitely would not have been possible without (your) support. The Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound is truly grateful!”

The NBPA Foundation is proud to work with our players to spread the love of the game to communities at home and abroad.
