Alexis Ajinca: The time has come for me to turn the page as a professional player. Basketball has given me a lot. I thank the fans, clubs, coaches, volunteers and my teammates for all these moments. I thank my friends and family who have always supported me.

Alexis and Courtney Ajinca have a heart for the homeless. The couple teamed up Saturday with Block Love Charlotte, a local nonprofit providing essentials and educational resources to those facing housing insecurity, to serve around 200 meals, as well as other winter items to those living in tent city near Uptown. Meals were catered by LuLu’s Maryland-Style Chicken and Seafood. The couple also purchased several blankets from Belk. The retailer donated overnight shipping in order to get the blankets to the Ajincas on time.
Alexis, who spent nine years as an NBA player, including two seasons in Charlotte, said helping the homeless has always been a calling. Even while they lived in New Orleans when Alexis’ career took them there, they were active in providing necessary supplies like food, blankets and water to the homeless. “It’s hard when you are in that situation to get out of it,” Ajinca said. “If we can help them in any type of way [we want to] help them get back on their feet.”
