Kuzma says he would spend eight to nine hours a day playing basketball at the Flint YMCA as a kid.

NBA champion and philanthropist Kyle Kuzma gave a huge gift to his hometown of Flint, Michigan. The 27-year-old announced Wednesday that he was donating $1 million to the Flint YMCA to build a new gymnasium. The new gym will serve as the hub for activities at the Y.

In a statement received by Blavity about his good deed, Kuzma mentioned how much the Y meant to him growing up as a teen in Flint.
