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.
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.
Hoops for St. Jude Week – turning hoops into hope for the patients of St. Jude.
As we wrote a few weeks ago: "You don't need to have cancer yourself to understand what it can mean, just like you don't have to get shot to understand the power of a gun. In both cases, there's a finality involved that make everything else in life look like child's play." Cancer is among the most cunning, mystifying diseases on the planet, and it's deadly. Every dollar helps, and who knows? You might win a signed jersey!
