If you are bored to death and suffering from a basketball withdraw on this long OFF-season, there will be a (very) early charity game this Sunday (August 9th) between Leadrinho's friends (including Shawn Marion) and Varejão's friends. Most of the money will be reverted to Hope Unlimited, an organization that provides care for Brazilian youth.
