Also, an article about the Bulls Luol Deng winning the NBA Sportsmanship Award. He had the $25,000 for the award donated to the Pacific Garden Ministry. Here's what was said about this in "The Daily" from Sports Spectrum:
The Pacific Garden Mission is a haven for lost souls in Chicago. For nearly 140 years it has stood as a beacon to people who have found life almost too hard to live and have nowhere else to turn. It has seen men such as Mel Trotter (who founded a mission that still bears his name in Grand Rapids, Michigan) and Billy Sunday (former major leaguer) turn to Jesus Christ through its ministry. So, what does Pacific Garden Mission have to do with sports? Just this: Luol Deng, who was named the NBA Sportsmanship Award winner for 2006-2007, has designated the Mission to receive the $25,000 donation that goes with his award. How encouraging that an NBA player wants to have this money designated to a place that preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ to the needy in Chicago.
