Pro athlete Kevin Durant shows amazing class

I don’t follow the NBA much, but I heard a cool story on the radio this afternoon and just had to share it. It’s about Oklahoma Thunder player Kevin Durant.

Apparently, shortly after the tornado tore through Moore, OK earlier this week, Durant donated $1 million of his foundation’s money for disaster relief.

We hear so much about the selfishness of professional athletes these days, how they only care about themselves and what they can take. How great to hear Durant sees himself as part of the community and chose to make that donation. I’ve also heard he’s been helping out in the community, speaking with people, lifting spirits and helping out where he can.

If only more pro athletes were like Kevin Durant.
