David ThompsonNBA Hall of Famer and NC State legendary hoops star David Thompson was the keynote speaker at the annual dinner fundraiser for the Community Boys & Girls Club in Wilmington, North Carolina on November 21. Prior to the event Thompson held a news conference and discussed the issues of gang violence in the New Hanover County area and the specific need for after-school programs and a safe place for youth. He continued with this topic at the dinner during his keynote speech.

“Once you have that platform of being an athlete, I think it’s very important that you take up some worthy causes,” Thompson said. “This is a problem that exists and that often goes overlooked. To be able to speak at this event, I was all for it. Anytime you’re able to do something to help impact kids’ and families’ lives, I’m in.”

Thompson grew up in Shelby, North Carolina and had a stellar career at NC State in which he led the Wolfpack to an undefeated season (27-0) in 1973 and an NCAA Div. I National Championship in 1974. Nicknamed “Skywalker” for his unbelievable jumping ability, he was the No. 1 overall pick of both the 1974 NBA and ABA Drafts. The four-time NBA All-Star reached the peak of his pro career in 1978, when he scored 73 points on the final day of the season. He was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame on May 6, 1996.
