The NBA and its players definitely lend a helping hand for Thanksgiving. Most NBA teams had their players serving food to those in need so they could enjoy a good traditional holiday meal. Here's how several of the teams give assistance to those in need during the Thanksgiving holiday.

- The Nets served Thanksgiving dinner at the Montclair Citadel Salvation Army.

- The TWolves served meals to Purple Heart recipients and military families of Minneapolis.

- The Pistons distributed meals throughout Pontiac, Michigan for Lighthouse charities.

- The Pacers gave holiday groceries and tickets to a Pacers game for families at the Pacers Academy.

- The Knicks are hosting food drives up until December 13 for NYC families in need.

- The Lakers served Turkey dinner to families at the LA Boys & Girls Club.

- The Bucks helped out at Milwaukee's House of Peace holiday dinner program.

- The Nuggets' Marcus Camby runs an annual "Cambyland Turkey Tour" and delivers dinners to families at the Boys & Girls Club.

I am really happy with the start of the season; the Lakers have been a pleasant surprise this year. They have managed to put the Kobe trade drama behind them and focus on playing basketball, by the way I think he is staying with the Lakers the book I bet with NBA Lines has the odds oh him leaving at 20/1 so about a 4% chance of him leaving, hope they are right and he sticks around long enough for other players to evolve and have a shot at a championship
