NYT article about Devin Harris: A Net Reaches Out to Fans, Wherever They Are (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/12/sports/basketball/12sandomir.html)

I miss this guy, and it's not just about the basketball. What a classy young man.

"I've always been a fan of being personal with fans, to see me up close, rather than just giving money to charity," he said, as he signed his name to the small yellow picture frames given to about 50 shoppers and fans by Western Union, a Nets sponsor that invited Harris to the supermarket, where it has a money transfer outlet.

"I just like connecting with people," he said, a rack of Bundt cakes behind his chair.


While he was growing up in Milwaukee, Harris said, the Bucksí coach, George Karl, and guard Ray Allen were models of community involvement. When he played in Dallas, his Mavericks teammates Dirk Nowitzki and Josh Howard inspired his civic work ethic.

"I learned that itís expected of me," said Harris, who has a foundation, 34 Ways to Assist, to help children.

I miss this guy as well... but I think with his injury and all that Jason Kidd trade (for now) doesn't seem so bad after all.

Good luck always to DH
