NBA Players Saved Coach's Life: After the Los Angeles Clippers refused to cover the prostate cancer surgery of assistant coach Kim Hughes seven years ago, players Corey Maggette, Chris Kaman, Elton Brand and Marko Jaric did something unexpected. "Those guys saved my life," Hughes said. "They paid the whole medical bill. It was like $70,000 or more. It wasn't cheap." Maggette said, "Kim was one of our coaches and he's a really good friend of mine, too. ... I thought it was a great opportunity to help someone in need, to do something that Christ would do."
