The Good Works of Shareef Abdur-Rahim

Few NBA players give as much to the community as the newest Net, Shareef Abdur Rahim. And fewer still do it in as many ways as he does. The Atlanta native has his own charity as well as a venture capital firm that provides seed money to small inner-city companies. Abdur-Rahim is also known for taking the lead in the face of national tragedy. As he told the Star-Ledger's Dave D’Allesandro, "I'm very thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the community. I don't take that lightly."
