by January 16, 2011

Nice work, Z-Bo! The Memphis Commercial Appeal has the 411: “Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph has not only been a major factor on the basketball court these days. He’s been a force in the community. Randolph received the NBA Cares Community Assist Award for December in recognition of his ongoing philanthropic and charitable work. The league honored Randolph in part for what he did to brighten the holidays for children and families in need. Randolph provided gifts and unforgettable experiences to Memphis residents through partnerships with a variety of organizations, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis, and MIFA’s Holiday Hope Chest… As an NBA Cares Community Assist Award recipient, Randolph will receive the David Robinson Plaque with the inscription, ‘Following the standard set by NBA Legend David Robinson who improved the community piece by piece.’ The NBA will also donate $5,000 to the charitable foundation of his choice.”
