No real surprise that 2 former Blue Devils step up and do the right thing. Sadly (and not surprisingly) the same can't be said for Donald Sterling and the Clippers organization.
Maggette, Brand, Jaric, and Kaman help pay for prostate surgery.
Thanks for sharing the link. Just goes to show that Duke recruits quality individuals.
I've always felt that Maggette got short shrift from the Duke fans for leaving early (and the subsequent release of the Myron Piggie information) but as it always happens, there is much more behind the story.
why wouldn't their insurance cover prostate surgery? that makes no sense.
Let's not make this a PP discussion of health care.
For some reason this makes me pretty angry. $700k is chump change for Donald Sterling, and he couldn't even be bothered? Even if he's worried about setting a precedent, donate anonymously, under the table.
He really is a terrible, terrible person.
Start here for plenty of evidence to that effect.

Realize this story broke 7 YEARS after the fact.
43 min 10 FG 10 FGA 1 3PTA 1 3PT 10 FTA 10 FTM 7 REB 3 AST 2 STL 31 PTS
Elton Brand, Chris Kamen and Milo Jaric were also involved in paying for Hughes' surgery.
Somebody already beat you to it, but this is truly a fascinating story. I'm glad to see (yet again) how classy Duke alums are, especially in addition to Grant Hill's well-articulated response to Jalen Rose.
It is apparent that the Duke guys and others were generous. Good for them.
What does Jalen Rose have to say about these Duke players....?
Good things do happen to the clippers. Great story.
It's not exactly as nefarious as the headline reads, but the man arguably got a better chance at survival, and as a bonus didn't miss much work because of it.
