Grant receives NBA citizenship award




        Former Xavier stars Brian Grant of the Portland Trail Blazers was given the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for the 1998-99 season in recognition for work with local charities, including a drive to help feed disadvantaged families.

        The award is presented annually by the Professional Basketball Writers Association.

        Since signing with the Trail Blazers before the 1997-98 season, Grant has worked with several charities in the Portland area.

        He and his wife distributed Thanksgiving dinners to more than 50 families, and the Brian Grant Foundation provided dinners for families involved with Mothers Against Gang Violence in northeast Portland.

        Grant also hosted 25 underprivileged children at every home game.

        Grant visits terminally ill and disadvantaged children, often arranging for them to visit Portland's locker room.
