Hurricane Katrina brought plenty of devastation. This was also a time when the Americans with a humanitarian spirit and kinship teamed together to provide relief to the victims. In such a difficult time, the need of the time was that people from all walks of life help in the massive refurbishment. Philadelphia 76ers forward Chris Webber lead a drive in Detroit to collect supplies and money for displaced students. The NBA has been in the forefront in the endeavors to help the sufferers in this time of need. One reason that NBA has emerged out as a major benevolent organization is because the teams are still on vacation. It is the time when MLB is busy hosting its pennant races, NFL has just entered in the Week No. 3 of its season and NHL is busy preparing the training camp for the Oct. 5 opening day. The NBA players and league have shown their deep concern and have helped out the victims to their best. It been less than two weeks the destruction took place and our NBA players like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, Dwyane Wade, Rashard Lewis, Amare Stoudemire, Jermaine O'Neal, Steve Francis, Stephon Marbury and Jerry Stackhouse played in all-star game in Houston to donate the proceedings to the Hurricane Relief Effort. It was the game of magnitude since everybody worked towards the same goal.
