Legacy

Time helps us all to gain a better understanding of impact. For over 65 years, the National Basketball Players Association and its players have been central to the evolution of the game of basketball. At the same time, our players have sought to transform the communities in which they grew up and where they play by dedicating their time and their resources to have a positive impact on the lives of people in need. To honor this unique legacy of athleticism, philanthropy and caring, the NBPA Foundation has made substantial gifts to both the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the National Museum of African American History and Culture to tell the compelling story of our players and the history of the union in supporting them.
