We have seen plenty of instances in the past where NBA athletes give back to the communities where they're from. There's no doubt that those are amazing gestures, and it's great to see them try to make lives better for the less fortunate.

Recently, Bismack Biyombo has announced that he will donate his entire 2021-22 NBA salary towards building a hospital in his homeland of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Once my dad passed, the love of the game kinda fell a little bit, because he was my everything. He was my friend, business partner, mentor, everything.

One thing that really stuck out in my mind is that every day I went back to the hospital back home to take care of him, I was always asking myself, 'What about these people that can't take their family members out? I wanted to make this year about my dad because my dad spent most of his life thinking about me, my brothers, my sisters and servicing people. This year, I really wanted and I had a desire, my motivation was to make it about him.

"What I told my agent was my salary for this year would be going to the construction of a hospital back home, to give hope to the hopeless at home. Those individuals that cannot take their family members out, I wanted to be able to give them better conditions so that they can somewhat have hope that their loved ones will be able to leave and see another day.

It is amazing that Bismack Biyombo is able to undertake such an insane humanitarian project, and there's no doubt that this is a big sacrifice from him. Hopefully, the hospital turns out fantastic, and it will certainly improve the conditions in his homeland for the better.

In terms of basketball, Bismack Biyombo's focus will be on helping the Phoenix Suns win a championship this season. The Phoenix Suns are the most dangerous team in the NBA, and Biyombo's energy off the bench has been fantastic for them.
