NBA players give $2 million to relief fund

NEW YORK - NBA players are contributing more than $2 million to provide relief to victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The donation, announced Thursday by the NBA Players Association, is in addition to previously announced efforts by players, teams, owners and the league to raise money and supplies. The NBA has contributed more than $1 million to the relief effort.

"NBA players share in the deep sense of loss and devastation caused by the catastrophe that took place last week," said Billy Hunter, executive director of the union. "This gesture is our attempt to make a collective contribution toward the relief effort and our players' way of expressing their solidarity for the victims and their families."
Another example of the sports world helping out and giving money to places that need it. My applause to the players for giving.
