What about the players who ain't fools and who do give to the community and are generally good citizens?
Here's a list:
Add to that a few others who should be mentioned:
Jonathan Bender - didn't have much of a career. But he was there with money in hand when George Bush sent the hurricane through the southern states (just kidding, don't go crazy on me). He also has a foundation of some kind to help kids in need.
Julius Erving - I don't know if the guy does more or less than other players and former players. Just seems like I have heard him mentioned quite a lot over the years.
Bill Bradley - former Senator after his playing days. I know nothing of his politics, but you can make a case that he served the people. Also has considerable time sitting on the boards of non profit organizations
Kevin Johnson - current mayor of Sacramento. Again I know nothing of his politics, but he is attempting to serve.
Bill Russell - outspoken advocate for human rights the world over.
There are plenty others, so chime in!
