Chicago Bull Derrick Rose high above the rim with a sweet dunk, leaving the Suns stunned by a 115-104 loss.  But better yet, Rose was dunking for dollars.  For each point he personally scored he donated $1,000 to Haiti relief–a country, as you’ve heard, has now suffered a major earthquake with two huge aftershocks leaving them completely devastated and death tolls are climbing.

He is one of a long list of ballers to step up to the cause, including Dwayne Wade, Alonzo Mourning, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, and Gilbert Arenas, Pau Gasol, Joe Johnson, and Tyreke Evans.  Mourning and Wade have started a fund called “Athletes Relief Fund for Haiti”.  Other organizations providing relief can be found here.–vid via The Sporting Blog
