LOS ANGELES-Former Los Angeles Clippers’ coach, Kim Hughes, was diagnosed with prostate cancer and was faced with a $70,000 medical bill that he couldn’t afford. When they learned about his situation, former palyers forward Corey Maggette, Chris Kaman, Elton Brand and Marko Jaric decided to chip in to pay his bill.
The Milwaukee Journal-Times reports:
“Those guys saved my life,” Hughes said. “They paid the whole medical bill. It was like $70,000 or more. It wasn’t cheap.
“It showed you what classy people they are. They didn’t want me talking about it; they didn’t want the recognition because they simply felt it was the right thing to do.”
