A star beyond the basketball court

Though most of us here in Coppell root for the Dallas Mavericks as our favorite basketball  team, we may have to consider Kevin Durant and the rest of the Oklahoma City Thunder as our second favorite.

Following Monday’s tornado in the Oklahoma City suburbs, Durant pledged a one million dollar donation to the relief fund. The Thunder immediatley offered to match the donation. It is easy to see why Durant has become so beloved in Oklahoma City, it is not every 24 year old who is generous and mature enough to share his wealth with those in need.

To help those devastated by this tragic tornado, please call 1-800-733-2767 to make a ten dollar donation. If you would like to read more about Kevin Durant’s donation, please click here.
