One of the first things I thought of when watching the tornados destroy so much of Oklahoma City yesterday was the Thunder players and how you just knew they would come out and help with the relief effort for the victims.
@kdtrey5 steps forward and gives $1mil matching gift to the ARC for disaster relief, text “REDCROSS” to 90999 for a $10 donation.

It didn’t take long for Durant to start it off with this $1 million donation to the Red Cross.
This won’t be the last we hear of Thunder players helping out with this cause and of NBA players and people around the sports world in general.
It is one of the things that makes this team so great though. They really do feel like a big part of the community and represent Oklahoma.
Praying for the victims of the Tornadoes in OKC these last few days..Everybody stay safe!

This pretty much sums up Durant perfectly from Daily Thunder’s Royce Young:
Here’s the thing that says it all with KD’s $1 million donation: It’s the least surprising thing ever.
