Thumbs up JO Listed as One of the "NBA's Nice Guys"

Hoopsworld listed some of their favourites from around the league that spend alot of time with various charities in their repective hometowns or their "homes away from home". Be curious to know if JO will continue his donating ways here in Toronto.

Perhaps more than any other NBA player, O'Neal understood the commitment he made to the Pacers when he signed a contract also extended to the Indianapolis community. Some recent events of his foundation include a Celebrity Poker Tournament and the Jermaine O'Neal Super Shootout (a basketball tournament that showcases local basketball talent as well as raises funds for leadership development).

he goes from nba nice guy to nba negative guy all in one day!

i take it that nobody read this article since there hasn't been any 'fuck zo that money steal grub ass bitch posts yet'. shame.

i'm surprised that neither marbs or deke are on that list. pretty sure that they're the most heavily regarded charitable players in the league.

Interesting how there's always this need to point out the "nice guys" in the NBA. You never get this with MLB or the NHL.
