The NBA has a long-standing history of working with the military as part of the Hoops for Troops program and its ongoing work with the USO to support service members around the globe. Since 2003, the NBA has called upon players and legends to visit with active-duty military at installations in Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Texas, Egypt and Ireland.

In 2017, Caron Butler, Sam Perkins, Bob Delaney and the WNBA’s Ivory Latta brought an all-star experience to Afghanistan. The tour included exciting activities like 3-point contests, dunk challenges, unit visits, a Hoops for Troops USO Town Hall, an All Star-themed USO viewing party and the first-ever Hoops for Troops USO basketball tournament. Check out the below video to see more from this tour.

Most recently, NBA legend Kevin Martin, coach Monty Williams and WNBA legend Ruthie Bolton embarked on a multi-day USO tour to three U.S. military installations in Kuwait as part of the NBA Cares Hoops for Troops program. In addition to visiting with service members and coaching them in a basketball game, the trio attended a USO NBA Finals viewing party at a USO center.
