The SB Nation Basketball Network is proud to join with the NBA to spread the word about the Hoops for St. Jude Week. This is a great program for a great cause and we encourage you to participate.
Join NBA stars from around the league in celebrating Hoops for St. Jude Week and help fight childhood cancer. NBA stars including Pau Gasol, Rudy Gay, Shane Battier, Danny Granger, Steve Blake, Kevin Love and Coach George Karl have teamed up for Hoops for St. Jude by donating $20,000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Karl is the father of Idaho Stampede wing Coby Karl, who seems to have recovered quite well from his bout with papillary carcinoma, a form of treatable cancer. The younger Karl even earned a call-up to the Golden State Warriors earlier this season. Without money donated to cancer research in the past, I'm not sure he'd be able to have the career he's had thus far.
You can support Hoops for St. Jude Week by making a donation to St. Jude or by bidding for hope on items during the eBay auction at www.hoopsforstjude.org. LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade and others have each donated an autographed team jersey. Don't miss your opportunity to own a piece of NBA history while helping a child with cancer.
