Milwaukee Bucks point guard Malcolm Brogdon

"It's about teaching these kids about how to manage life.
These are kids that I don't think had a lot of the same opportunities I had.
I've been very blessed, and things have worked out really well for me.
But it doesn't happen like that for everybody. No matter what your situation is,
it's important to be able to give back and to understand other people's struggles."
