He is powerful and confident on the court, but you would never know that times were not always easy for Houston Rockets center Clint Capela. He grew up in a single parent home and at times, even lived in a foster home.
Capela decided he wanted to do something to help others in similar situations and it has brought him so much happiness as well as his mother.
Clint Capela's CC15 Foundation helps provide low-income single-parent families with the same opportunities that are available to dual-parent middle- and upper-class families.
Capela was joined on Friday night at his first foundation auction fundraising event by some of his teammates, including Chris Paul, James Harden and Austin Rivers.
