Dwight Howard Helps Terminally Ill Kid Score a Basket (Video)
Kevin Durant Gives Shoes to a Young Fan Who Had His Stolen Off His Feet (Video)
In case you’re really, really cynical, and didn’t believe that Kevin Durant was a good guy after his MVP speech last year, we’ve got some more evidence. The Thunder forward, after learning that a local fan was robbed of his shoes right off his feet, quickly did his best to set things straight by giving the kid a new pair of KD7s.
From the looks of these pictures, the kid may have walked away richer for the experience. It looks like he got a Kevin Durant sized pair that are signed, a pair in the kid’s size, a backpack, and a really ugly t-shirt. All while sitting courtside. Not the worst setup in the world.
Take a look:
