75th Anniversary Season Legacy Project Unveiling

To celebrate the NBA’s 75th season, NBA Cares continues its mission to use the power of basketball to create a lasting positive impact in communities globally. Working alongside each of its teams, the NBA has spent the 2021-2022 season refurbishing and unveiling a newly renovated Live, Learn, and Play Centers in each local market.

The Lakers selected the Boys & Girls Club of San Fernando Valley to be recipients of the honorary donation intended to refurbish and unveil a new Live, Learn and Play center. This close community partner caters to underserved and at-a-disadvantage youth from the northeast San Fernando Valley, and is dedicated to promoting the educational, vocational, social, and character developments of boys & girls between the ages of 6 and 17.

This project turned “The Club” Teen Center into a Lakers & NBA Cares branded Live, Learn & Play Center that provides a safe, stimulating, and comfortable environment for these older youth to study, relax, and build friendships. The room was reoutfitted based on a focus study of teen members, and was also designed by a former club member, Lucero Gutierrez of Lustrous Interiors.

During the unveiling, Lakers Legend Robert Horry made a special appearance to engage with the teens, taking photos and playing some ball. The 2020 Championship Trophy also made a visit, exciting the teens as they took in the new room.
