Retired NBA Star Devean George Built Affordable Housing & Grocery Store Co-Op in His Hometown of Minneapolis

Devean George is best known for being a former NBA Star and world Champion.

His professional basketball career spanned 11 years after he was drafted by the Lakers in 1999. George retired from the NBA after the 2009-2010 season playing for the Golden State Warriors.

Now George and his childhood friend, architect Jamil Ford, are giving back to their community. George and Ford have teamed up to creating a housing and community development in the area on Penn Avenue and Golden Valley Road, North Minneapolis, an area which is known for its high crime and violence rates.
