After the devastating tornado struck Moore, Oklahoma near Oklahoma City, Thunder star Kevin Durant showed us that he was a class act by donating $1 million to the disaster relief. The Red Cross announced the news, it was not Durant that came forward with the story. It goes to show that he was doing it out of the kindness of his heart and not the desire for attention.

Now, we are learning that Durant has done even more to help out those affected by the tornado.

Durant has encouraged Nike to donate $1 million in merchandise to the victims, along with the profits from special edition KD V Elites that were designed.

Here is the shoe that Durant and Nike have teamed up for with proceeds going to Oklahoma relief:

Durant is a class act. There is no denying that.

It is great that he continues to help out his community in any way possible. These are the stories that make us loves sports.
