Adonal Foyle entered the NBA as the eighth overall draft pick in 1997 and played his first ten seasons with the Golden State Warriors and last three with the Orlando Magic. Upon retirement, he stayed on with the Magic for 2 more NBA seasons (until 2012) as the Director of Player Development where he was responsible for mentoring, educating Magic players in an effort to help them realize their full potential on and off the court.
Adonal grew up in the tiny nation of St. Vincent & the Grenadines, where he first picked up a basketball at the age of 16. Adonalís quest for a college education which ultimately led him to the USA and into the NBA is an amazing and inspirational story of ambition, hard work and a little bit of luck. Growing up in impoverished circumstances in the Caribbean dramatically influenced Adonalís worldview, and off the court, he is an activist with a deep commitment to the community, especially young people.
KLF is his second non-profit organization, the first being Democracy Matters, a non-partisan campus-based project working to get big money out of politics and people in. In addition Adonal makes numerous community service visits and his work has been honored by a host of organizations.
Adonal has received many honors, including induction into the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame, appointment as a Goodwill Ambassador to St. Vincent & the Grenadines and named Runner Up Central Floridian of the Year by the Orlando Sentinel. Adonal graduated magna cum laude from Colgate University, and has a Masters in Sports Psychology at John F. Kennedy University. Adonal also serves as Secretary of the Board of the NBA Retired Players Association Orlando Chapter.
