Kevin Durant will be rewarded for $1 million donation

Published Add your comment

Kevin Durant has a physical edge to himself on court with a height of six foot ten inches, but it's his quickness of thought that separates himself from the rest of the NBA, and it seems he takes that thoughtful approach to his activities of the field as well.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star has recently shown this thoughtful side for all to see when he made the decision to donate $1 million to charity.

Tornado victims were to be the beneficiaries of Durant's cash, and the residents of Moore, where a tornado struck last May, had a visit from the basketball star as well.

He took the time to visit the devastated area and meet with victims that had been displaced.

As a result of his good work, Durant is now among four people that are set to be honored next month at the Dialogue Institute’s Annual Friendship Dinner and Awards Ceremony.

The institute recognizes people publicly who have “generously contributed their time, energy, expertise or financial resources” to the community.

Wanda Pratt and Tony Durant, the mother and brother of KD, will present the award to him. Oklahoma City will host the event on April 1st.
