And on Thursday, Luwawu-Cabarrot was part of a group of current and former NBA and WNBA players, coaches, executives and guests who volunteered to build 10 homes for underprivileged people in Lawley, near Johannesburg.
“It was great to see the people, to with them and talk to them,” Luwawu-Cabarrot said. “Just building the house and helping them, just knowing that you helped someone just a little bit — of course not for long, but you helped someone — it’s just great. Just amazing.”
There’s basketball on this trip, too.
Luwawu-Cabarrot is looking forward to Saturday’s game, when he’ll play alongside former 76ers teammate Joel Embiid, ex-Thunder forward Serge Ibaka and other players for Team Africa against a Team World squad highlighted by the Mavericks’ Harrison Barnes, the Spurs’ Rudy Gay and others.
