Kevin Durant helps injured camera guy after Thunder game

Kevin Durant

If you happen to be looking for another reason to like Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant, this story from NBA Reddit might be that reason.

Apparently, Durant decided to do a good deed for a media member who happened to have gotten injured during last night’s Thunder/Cavaliers game.

Here is the story from Redditor mathan1234:

I was working for Fox at the OKC Thunder game last night. After the game, one of our camera operators slipped and fell on the stairs last night. KD is about to walk his mother out, but sees this happen. He said to his mom, “Hold on a minute.”

He walks up to our cameraman says “Hey are you alright?”, he then walks our cameraman back to the production truck. On the way, they talk and decide that his finger might be broken, so they go to the arena’s x-ray machine and KD arranges for our guy to get an x-ray right there.

And to top it off, he waited there with him. Turns out the finger was broken. And once it was over, he walked our guy back to the truck and got him some ice.

I wasn’t in there for the x-ray being done, but I would like to assume that KD personally performed the x-ray and then gave our guy a piece of candy afterwards.
