    Maggette, Brand step up big in crisis

    Kim Hughes was in trouble, more trouble than he ever envisioned.
    While working as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Clippers seven years ago, Hughes was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
    But Hughes was told not to worry. His doctor assured him the cancer was slow growing and felt Hughes could wait several months before undergoing surgery.
    But Hughes had an issue with that. The Clippers were about to go to training camp and Hughes, a basketball junkie with a voracious work ethic, didn't want to miss a day of work.

    It's glad to see Brand and Maggette giving back, they're usually the ones taking.


    In all seriousness though, wonderful story. Really shows how well liked he was, out of all those mentioned in the article who chipped in, Kaman is the only one still on the Clippers roster. That's really saying a lot. Good to know good deeds are still done in the professional sports world.
