From being able to score in the paint, hit the outside shot to finding the open player, San Antonio Spurs' Boris Diaw definitely makes an impact whenever he is on the court.
But off the court is where he probably would say is where his biggest impact is felt.
Diaw, who has familial ties to Africa (his father is from Senegal), is doing what he can to ensure the people of Africa live a better life. Boris has set up a foundation named, "Babac'ards", with its aim to help the children on and off the court.
From recreational programs to educational development, Boris is on a mission to help the children and give something back.
