Along with the Lakers, the NBA and NFL agreed to help the Hurricane Sandy relief effort by donating a million dollars each.

 According to the Lakers Press Release announcing the donation:

EL SEGUNDO-  The Los Angeles Lakers announced today that they will donate $50,000, and will match donations up to an additional $50,000 from its fans, for a total donation of $100,000 to the American Red Cross to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy, it was announced today by Janie Drexel, Director of Charitable Services.
