And no, it's not because he shot .355 from the field in the '09-'10 season, during which he was dumped by the Knicks, Kings, and Bobcats. He made $84 million in his career, silly!
But Hughes, who retired last year, is, we suppose, doing something good with all that money: He pumped $30 of gas for the first 150 cars that visited a Berkeley, Missouri Quik Trip on Sunday afternoon. $30 doesn't go a long way when it comes to gas these days, not even in the Midwest, but it's nice that Hughes chose to help.
That said, if you do see Flip Murray pumping your gas, well, you know.
