Kevin Durant’s Gift Is A Story Worth Retelling


So many times the negative stories about professional athletes get circulated, rehashed and retold by the media and the blogosphere. As an Editor, I think we need to retell the positive stories with equaled passion.  I am posting on this story because it is a story worth retelling. It doesn’t involve Detroit or the Pistons but whenever a story like this comes out we should hold it up as an example for all to see.

Yesterday Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder made a 1 million dollar donation to the Red Cross through his foundation, The Durant Family Foundation. Kevin Durant didn’t have to do this.  But he did because he saw a need and had the ability to help. We should all remember that it’s not how much you do but doing what you can that counts.

The way Kevin Durant did it deserves credit as well.  He didn’t do a press release or send a tweet.  He made the donation quietly and let the Red Cross make the announcement.  What a class move by the Young NBA star.  It is great to see people helping  just to help and not for any other motivation.

So on behalf of the staff at Detroit Jock City. Thank you Mr. Durant for kind gift and doing what you can to help.
