Adonal Foyle: As a part of the NBA family, I’ve been proud to hear all the players and coaches taking a stand against the President’s Executive Order. And I am deeply touched as a person who immigrated to this country nearly 25 years ago. As of right now, this decision is affecting Muslims, but similar to the poem at the top of this story, who knows what decisions could be made that will affect others.
NBA and FIBA players and coaches, including Cheick Diallo (New Orleans Pelicans; Mali), Wayne Ellington (Miami Heat; U.S.), Justin Holiday (New York Knicks; U.S.), Meyers Leonard (Portland Trail Blazers; U.S.), Thon Maker (Milwaukee Bucks; South Sudan; BWB Americas 2015/BWB Global 2016) and Emmanuel Mudiay (Denver Nuggets; Democratic Republic of the Congo), will coach the top high school age campers from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. Diallo, Ellington, Holiday, Leonard, Maker and Mudiay will be joined by former NBA player Adonal Foyle (St. Vincent and the Grenadines), former WNBA players Rushia Brown (U.S.), Ebony Hoffman (U.S.) and Ruth Riley (U.S.), as well as select players from the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge.
Adonal Foyle: When I was working on my master’s degree in sports psychology, you were gracious enough to let me interview you for my thesis on professional athletes making the transition to retirement after their playing days were over. The stories you told made me feel hopeful about my life after basketball, and it was then that I truly realized how much of an example you were for professional athletes once they stop playing. You started a local business, Big Nate’s BBQ, in San Francisco, and put money back into the community for 20 years before you closed in 2011. The Warriors brought you back as a community ambassador and introduced you to what we now call Dub Nation. Altogether, you spent more than 40 years with this franchise. And Warriors fans — past and present — have never forgotten your contributions.
Adonal Foyle: When I entered the league in 1997, I wanted to follow in your footsteps as the Warriors’ center. Looking back now, I realize that what I really wanted to do was to follow in your footsteps in life. You were one of the very best players in the NBA. But more importantly, you were a true renaissance man. You paved the way for players who wanted to thrive in their post-playing careers. I know I’ll never forget that. Thank you for the impact you made on the hearts of Warriors fans young and old. And thank you for being a positive influence in my life. I know that every time I break down X’s and O’s, I’ll be thinking of you. I will forever be grateful for your friendship, and I will continue to honor you by staying optimistic, and by being a model citizen to our fans.
