Buddy Hield, the Bahamas, and You

September 27, 2019

From Sports Illustrated‘s September 23, 2019 issue —

“Kings guard Buddy Hield grew up in the Bahamas before going on to star at Oklahoma and make his mark as a pro in Sacramento.

“So when Hurricane Dorian made landfall, the devastation was more personal for Hield than most. He’s since sprung into action, raising money for his homeland and making sure their needs are front of mind.”

When asked what it’s been like to have to follow the news from so far away, he said, “The videos seem unreal until you really get to see [the destruction]. But I know from being there as a kid, when the hurricanes hit, it was never how it used to be [afterward].

“When the storms hit, we go back four or five years because the resources aren’t there and the hotels aren’t making enough money.

“Everything is pushed back, so we never could get back to where we once were.”
