Any time a Philadelphia team loses to a New York team you can not help but feel a little stung. Last night the Sixers lost to the Knicks 93-92, but on this night not many people were really focused on the game itself.

One much maligned Sixers player has a personal connection to Haiti. Samuel Dalembert was born in Haiti and still has connections there between friends and family. This obviously is a tough time for Dalembert so as far as basketball is concerned it is remarkable how he can focus in on the sport while his home country is ravaged in the aftermath of a tremendous earth quake that practically shattered the country.
Nobody can truly understand what Dalembert is going through, but hopefully his family and friends are as safe as they can be at this unpleasent time down south.
