It’s Official: Kevin Durant Is The Greatest

This much is true: Kevin Durant is the greatest. It doesn’t matter if you’re not a Thunder fan — in fact, it doesn’t even matter if you’re a Sonics fan and passionately dislike the Thunder. In terms of being a good dude, there is no one in the NBA right now, or perhaps in sports as a whole, that we like more than Kevin Durant at this moment.

Sure, he’s a fantastic basketball player and he gave this perfect response last week to the question “Was this a wasted year?” But here’s what makes Durant so great:

Durant didn’t “report” that himself, mind you — it was the Red Cross that broke the news.

We’re not the only ones who love Durant for this:

Even self-described assholes showed love:

Of course, let’s not forget why this donation was so important. Considering Oklahoma’s devastation and loss in the wake of yesterday’s tornado, please take a minute to donate to the Red Cross yourself. We can all be like Kevin Durant in that regard. Just not in the dunking or general scoring regard.

[Update: Remember, for every Kevin Durant, there's a Fred Phelps Jr., who claims that Durant was the cause of the tornadoes in the first place for his support of Jason Collins.]

    What a BLESSING this man is. He’s such an INSPIRATION to be/do your best.

    C-H-A-R-A-C-T-E-R personified. C-L-A-S-S act. C-H-A-M-P-i-O-N on/off the court…in

    season/off season!!!. There’s nothing 2nd place about him. His HEART will go on.

    Actually he’s not the Greatest. The people who came to the need of others directly after the tornado hit are THE GREATEST….. Just becuase he gave 1% of his 53Million Dollar Contract and is a NBA Player he gets a pat on the Back….. SMH (Oh and he gets to claim that on his Taxes) I agree it’s a good help… But to crown this man the Greatest —–COM’ON Man.

    Great point.
