Caruso has a basketball court named after him in his hometown that originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Alex Caruso is a fan favorite wherever he goes. From his freshman year with the Chicago Bulls, to his title-winning tenure with the Lakers, to his hometown of College Station, Texas.

In regards to the latter, Caruso was recently honored with a basketball court named after him—and a plaque to commemorate it—in College Station’s Castlegate community.

That same court, according to a speech Caruso gave at the event shared by the Bulls’ Twitter accountwas the site of many long days and late nights honing his craft.

“This field has traveled with me for many days to where the sun has set and I walk home, bouncing on the ball,” said Caruso. “Hopefully all the kids here, you all can enjoy many more days.”

The event commemorating Caruso was attended by a group of family, friends and community members. His ties to that community are deep. Not only did Caruso grow up in Castlegate, he also led A&M Consolidated High School to a program record in 2012, and then attended — and played basketball for — Texas A&M from 2012-2016.

In his final collegiate season, Caruso also led a team that set a program record for wins, marching to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA tournament.

Needless to say, Caruso is a legend in the area. Now, many College Station residents will have the opportunity to pursue their basketball dreams at ‘Alex Caruso Court’.
