Here is a pretty amazing story about 4 players, one of them a current Buck (Corey Maggette), stepping up to take care of their coach when the team wouldn’t.
Clippers assistant coach Kim Hughes found out he had cancer. Then it got worse, the team said they wouldn’t pay for the surgery. Maggette and several other players stepped up and paid for the surgery. And a good thing because it turned out to be worse than expected.
Hughes made a comment that showed that they were truly Well-Met:
“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.”
Read the article because it goes on to detail how both sides are good men, but it ends with this succinct quote from Hughes:
“You can have all the money, all the success, all that stuff, all those so-called important things in life, but in the end, you’re judged by what you did for your fellow man.’
