Good for K.D. Don't see many stories of the rich chipping in for victims. It's usually what little is left of the middle class these days in this country, that usually give a darn about things like this.

This kind of generosity is the other half of the great game play that pro athletes are capable of. Kevin D. shows true heart here.
Nice move!

I've always liked Durant - going back to his college days. Never was a trouble maker and always hugged his mother after each game. He's a stand up guy - an example for kids of all ages.

Win win. Helps his local people in need, gives him a good P.R boost, and its a huge tax write off.

You're right, plus the fact that Oklahoma's representatives continuously vote NO on disaster relief funds even though this is tornado alley here which KD's donation even more important.

We the people help each other here in Oklahoma time after time but we pay taxes for reasons such as these. KD's donation should not have to be necessary.
