Nets co-captain Devin Harris will be the recipient of the prestigious Thurman Munson Award, given to a pro athlete for his on-court excellence and community service (NJNets.com). "Devin is an example to others as to the true meaning of sportsmanship both on and off the court," said owner Mikhail Prokhorov. "I commend him for his efforts in the community and wish him continued success with his 34 Ways to Assist Foundation." Most recently, his foundation donated $75,000 to the "Eric LeGrand Believe Fund" in an effort to raise funds for the paralyzed Rutgers football player. Harris will be honored on February 1 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City.
