Nick Young is a Mensch

Hey all,

I had a chance to go to Nick Young’s back-to-school giveaway at Robertson Park – he played 2 on 2 with kids – and after the raffle (laptops, iPads, etc.) – he took his shoes off his feet and gave to 8-year old boy – left the park in socks.

Which NBA Teams Have Trade Exceptions? 14 teams have total of 25 exceptions – including an oddity – the Philadelphia 76ers are NOT under the cap, despite only have $40 million in salary on the books

Which seems to contradict this – though it doesn’t but does but doesn’t:

Sixers, Bucks Only Real Cap Teams Left

(BTW – it’s about to become Sixers, Suns – instead of Bucks after the Caron Butler deal goes through)

I’m pretty happy with this next story:

This is a three months old thread. Was it really necessary to bump it?

In this season of Thanksgiving, this story of Nick Young's giving back or charity, is worthwhile, just like Kobe's efforts to address homelessness in Los Angeles.

So, we should bump all threads about giving to charity this Thanksgiving?
