Around the Leagues:

  • HOUSTON -- Several NBA players have committed to play a game benefiting the John Lucas Foundation, which provide substance-abuse counseling for athletes. The game will be played on November 20 in Houston, at Delmar Field House. "It’ll be neat for the fans to come out and see,” Lucas said. “It won’t be a celebrity game. It’s going to be a real game. I’m really excited about the competition.” There are about 20 players committed, including Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Rashard Lewis. Houston Texans' Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub will also participate, though Lucas would not say if they were going to play. Former NBA players Moses Malone and Robert Horry will coach the teams. “It’s a nice mixture of young players,” Lucas said. “I wanted the young, the old and a little bit of the new, so our fans could see who’s coming and who’s already established.” For more information visit Coach Lucas' website: http://johnlucasenterprises.com/The_Foundation.html
  • ORLANDO, Fla. -- Dwight Howard is doing everything he can to help those who can't help themselves while this crazy NBA lockout continues. On November 13, Howard hosted a charity basketball game to benefit his very own charity, the D12 Foundation. Participating were teammates Gilbert Arenas, Quentin Richardson, Jameer Nelson and others, as well as former Magic players including Penny Hardaway. Rapper Lil Wayne and boxer Floyd Mayweather served as celebrity coaches for the teams. For more information on Howard's foundation, check out http://www.d12foundation.org/.
  • NEW YORK -- Some run the marathon to win. Some run to say they did. Thousands run it for their respective charities. Olympic Gold Medal winning softball pitcher, Jennie Finch, started at the back of the pack and earned money for every person she passed for the New York Road Runners youth programs. Apolo Ohno, Gold Medal winning speed skater, ran to raise money for the Special Olympics. Former NHL'er Mark Messier did double-duty for two very worthy causes, as he ran for Tomorrow's Children Fund, benefiting cancer victims and their families. He also ran for a charity that benefits wives and widows of the September 11 attacks and all first responders. For more info check out: www.nyrr.org    www.specialolympics.org    www.atcfkid.com
