>MINNEAPOLIS -- Oklahoma City isnt just a place where Thunder star Kevin Durant lives these days. Its home. >So as he watched the horrifying images Monday as a tornado ripped through suburban Moore, the emotions came bubbling to the surface and so did the need to help. Durant pledged $1 million for tornado relief through his foundation on Tuesday, eager to help a devastated area begin to rebuild. >"As the day went on and I saw the footage and the casualties and the houses being blown away, it was tough to see," said Durant, who was in Minneapolis to watch longtime friend Monica Wright play a preseason game for the Minnesota Lynx. "I call Oklahoma City my home. I go through Moore all the time. Its unfortunate. Were going to come together as a city like we always do and were going to bounce back." >The American Red Cross said the gift from Durants foundation is meant to match other donations and be an incentive for more people to give. The Thunder also announced a $1 million donation, as did the NBA and players union. > So apparently, it seems like Kevin Durant was actually one upon doing philanthropy when used to play for OKC. Shame on how things have turned out since then.
