Former basketball stars and PAL team up to benefit youngest tornado victims

(Continued)

MOORE —

“You can’t measure what it means,” Hill said. “You see the smiles on their faces to have someone with his caliber; he brings notoriety to it. So people know these kids need help. These families need help.

“They need more than just personal items. They need comfort, they need words of wisdom. They need encouragement. They need to know there is love and support coming from across the country.”

The NBRPA also donated $5,000 to tornado relief efforts in the Moore area. But the former players realized it was them who got something in return for being at the clinic.

“It really makes you want to sit down and be quiet and not complain about anything,” Birdsong said. “I never had to experience anything like this in life. To see kids and people go through something like that, it really just makes you want to shut up and never complain about anything.”
