Yesterday in Phoenix before the All-Star game, Yao Ming was recognized by his Team Yao member Bill Duffy and his agency BDA Sports for the first annual BDA Giving Award for Yao’s philanthropic efforts over the past year. Steve Nash‘s foundation was also recognized.

Duffy also contributed $5,000 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in the memory of Leandro Barbosa‘s mother who passed away recently. Barbosa is represented by BDA Sports.
