Black is making $6.1 million in the final year of his contract this season with the Lakers and is expected to continue his NBA career. He has put in the paperwork to start the Tarik Black Foundation with a mission “to provide inner-city youth with an opportunity and perspective to level the playing field” primarily back home in Memphis. He plans to buy his first house this year in Los Angeles. He has also invested in the OjO Electric Scooter, a company that makes e-scooters with a patented ergonomic design for comfort, style and agility.
“My dream and passion actually is doing nonprofit work in a city with so much history when it comes to civil rights leaders or slavery,” said Black, whose mother used to be a tour guide at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis. “And the Underground Railroad, Memphis was the main stop in it. So, being from a city like that, understanding the background and wanting to go back and work with inner-city youth, which is my true passion, it actually ended up being a blessing.”

Lakers forward Julius Randle described his defense against Chicago’s Taj Gibson as “terrible.” Lakers reserve forward Larry Nance Jr. suggested both he and reserve forward Tarik Black could take on a larger shot-blocking role. Walton considers Randle’s self-assessment a tad harsh, but he liked the mindset. “We don’t want them to be too hard on themselves. But we want them to be critical of themselves,” Walton said. “We want them to take more ownership. If we have defensive coverages and they’re out there and something is not working, we want them to be given the freedom as a group to make that change and guard it differently.”
