NBA Player Surprises Teen With Custom Wheelchair

Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson and the Thompson Family Foundation surprise a Bay Area teen with a brand new custom basketball wheelchair. Before the Warriors’ home game against the Milwaukee Bucks earlier this month, Thompson presented Santa Rosa teen Braulio Noriega with the new fully-customized chair, which was made possible through a partnership with the Challenged Athletes Foundation.

Thompson rolled the chair into the Warriors’ media room before the game and handed it over to a stunned Noriega. "This is such an amazing moment," the teen says. "Honestly coming to a Warriors game is such a cool thing and I get to meet Klay as well, and get a wheelchair presented by him. Just like so much emotion right now, I don't even know what to say." Noriega got to put his new chair to good use the next day at the Warriors Basketball Academy in Oakland.

Thompson, who’s overcome two career-threatening injuries in recent years, says that what he was able to do for Noriega gives him chills. "What the Thompson Family Foundation was able to do today,” he says. “It put everything in perspective, before I ran out of the tunnel, just how blessed I am to play this game and the impact I can have on the youth."
