Cook's offseason work honored by NBA

MIAMI (AP) -- Daequan Cook of the Miami Heat is the latest
recipient of the NBA's Community Assist Award.
Cook rushed to aid an Ohio family this summer, when their
12-year-old son was killed in a hit-and-run bike crash. The boy's
name was DaQuan Sales -- different spelling, same pronounciation as
the Heat player.
Cook was Sales' NBA idol. Hearing that, Cook reached out to the
family, helped pay for the boy's funeral, invited 10 of DaQuan's
friends to his basketball camp and was involved in a bicycle safety
program at the boy's school.
He's the fifth different player in Heat history to win the
award.
