Chuck’s wife, Karen, had a few words to say about how her husband is dealing with this down time from the NBA.

“It’s been a challenge, especially for people who are really extroverted and used to raveling with people. It took a little while but he’s been golfing and we’ve been volunteering and we do regular zoom calls with our friends. I think we’re trying really hard to stay connected in the large community.” Karen says.

Chuck and Karen volunteer with The North Texas Food Bank and Catholic churches. They have always been recognized in the community as playing a huge role in helping out.

“You feel like you’re doing something, you just can’t sit and do nothing.” Chuck says.
