Chicago basketball legend investing in native city.

Hall of Fame point guard Isiah Thomas’ list of accomplishments is gaudy: a pair of NBA championships as a player with the Detroit Pistons, an NCAA championship with Indiana, 12 All-Star selections, and more than 18,000 career points and 9,000 career assists in the NBA.

The Chicago native recently purchased a six story, 20-unit apartment building in Evanston, Ill., for $7.3 million. Evanston is a northern suburb of Chicago.
