Thomas Walkup: The Small-Town Kid Who Took the Basketball World by Storm
Thomas Walkup was born on December 30, 1992, in Pasadena, Texas. Growing up in a small town, Walkup had a passion for basketball from a young age. He played for his high school team, where he quickly made a name for himself as a talented player.

After graduating from college, Walkup pursued a professional basketball career. He played for several teams in Europe before signing with the Chicago Bulls in 2017.
