Several of them, including now Milwaukee Bucks forward Corey Maggette, Chris Kaman, Elton Brand and Marko Jaric, were taken aback by the news and decided to offer their assistance. "Kim was one of our coaches and he's a really good friend of mine, too," Maggette said. "He was in a situation where the Clippers' medical coverage wouldn't cover his surgery. I thought it was a great opportunity to help someone in need, to do something that Christ would do. "It shows your humanity, that you care for other people and not just yourself. Kim was in a life-and-death situation." Racine Journal-Times

The cancer had quickly spread and was on the brink of moving to other areas of his body. If Hughes had delayed the surgery, and if Maggette and his teammates hadn't provided the necessary financial assistance, Hughes doesn't know what would have occurred. Well, actually, he does. "Those guys saved my life," Hughes said. "They paid the whole medical bill. It was like $70,000 or more. It wasn't cheap. "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." Racine Journal-Times

Maggette said that was indeed the case, laughing how he has repeatedly told Hughes over the years it wasn't necessary. "Kim thanks me every time he sees me; he does that every single time," Maggette said smiling. "I've said to him, ‘Kim, come on. You don't have to do that. You're good.' "It just shows you what kind of person he is, to keep thanking me all the time for that. Like I said, it was just my time to serve another human being. "I think if anyone on my team is in that kind of situation, I would try to help him out if I could. That's just the person I am. I was raised that way." Racine Journal-Times
