NBA Finals
Since 2001, the NBA has made a commitment to giving back to the city of each conference champion during the NBA Finals. These projects, including the creation and/or renovation of basketball courts, libraries, and technology centers, are designed to leave a positive lasting impact in the respective cities. As part of the celebration of the each teamís success, these projects are officially unveiled to the community during an event that features players and coaches from each team as well as NBA legends and executives.
As part of the 2009 NBA Finals, NBA Cares and the Los Angeles Lakers unveiled a Reading & Learning Center at the Salesian Boys & Girls Club. The center received major renovations, including: new carpet, paint, Lakers wall graphics, computers, furniture, books and audio-visual equipment.
During the 2009 NBA Finals, the Orlando Magic helped to upgrade the Northwest Community Center with new features such as a library stocked with new books, a game room, a renovated technology center outfitted with brand-new laptops and a printer.
The Boston Celtics made the most of their return to glory by dedicating a Reading & Learning Center at the Blackstone Community Center during the 2008 NBA Finals. The center scored a major Celtics makeover, outfitted with new furniture, books, resources and computers.
