For his play on the basketball court, Marcus Smart has won a number of honors in the recent year. He received some recognition for his work off the court on Monday.

The current defensive player of the year was given the NBA Cares Community Assist Award for the month of October for his “ongoing support for pediatric cancer patients and dedication to promoting access to opportunity for inner-city players” as a result of his effect on the community.

It highlights Marcus Smart’s sensitivity outside of work and displays his actual self, which makes it a satisfying achievement.

Marcus Smart said to Celtics.com on Sunday night, “Winning an honor like this, a community award tells people that we’re more than just basketball players.

We realize the influence we can have off the court by investing a little of our time because “we are human beings like everyone else, we go through some challenges, similar hardships like anybody else.”

Smart spends a lot of his spare time visiting hospitals, and holding zoom calls with young patients. And organizing fundraising activities for his YounGameChanger Foundation. He has made it his life’s work outside of basketball to support individuals who are dealing with the illness since he has been adversely affected by cancer multiple times.

Much of Marcus Smart’s compassion was instilled in his mother

“As a child, I lost my mom, my brother, and a few aunts and uncles to cancer. This is where my passion for helping kids with cancer comes from,” Smart added.

“I wish I had someone who would be as interested in helping me or my family in ways that we couldn’t even fathom, like giving us hope, making us feel better, making us smile, and things like that. To be able to come and show support for someone that people look up to, such as an NBA player or any other kind of athlete, artist, or somebody they like, means more than anything in the world, in my opinion.”

Smart’s mother, Camellia died away in September 2018. It was after a protracted struggle with illness. She had a major influence on his compassion. She used to advise him as he ascended to the top of the basketball tier. He shouldn’t forget to help others in need since he could need their assistance in the future when he descends.

“That really, really, really stuck,” according to Smart. “Make careful to treat everyone with respect since you never know what they are going through or what you could experience that might need the assistance of someone else.”

Since he began playing in the league in 2014, Smart has been giving back to the community. He often stops by Boston Children’s Hospital, where he spends time with children receiving cancer treatment one-on-one.
