NBA Players, Celebrities Give Back to Local Charities

CHARLOTTE, N.C.- The NBA All-Star game is exciting, but the real winners are the local charities.

When they're not playing or hosting parties, NBA players and other celebrities are spending their time giving back.

Earlier this week, Hornets owner Michael Jordan praised the team’s persistence in making sure All-Star weekend returned to Charlotte.

“We have 1,500 people working around the community, and I think it’s just, it just shows how the NBA can come into the city in Charlotte and just become part of the fabric in just a few days,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said.

Jordan and Silver spent Friday afternoon sorting donations for the Second Harvest Foodbank, two of those 1,500 volunteers spread across the community for the NBA Cares Day of Service.
