5. Samuel Dalembert (Haiti)

Following the 2010 Haiti earthquake, then Philadelphia 76ers center Samuel Dalembert, who grew up in Haiti, Canada and New Jersey, stepped up in a major way for his home country. His contributions to relief efforts won him the NBA’s J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award (in fact, all four players nominated for that particular award were Caribbean-born) and the NBA Human Spirit Award in 2010 and 2011, respectively. A member of last year’s Sacramento Kings, Dalembert is close to signing with the reigining-champion Dallas Mavericks.
