Kevin Durant makes 'get well' call to youngster after brain surgery

Published: February 18, 2014

Kevin Durant, along with actor Kevin Hart and St. Louis Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin, called a 13-year-old boy named Mikka last week to wish him a speedy recovery after he underwent brain surgery, according to a report by TMZ Sports.

"Mikka didn't believe it. When Kevin Durant called I said, 'It's really K.D,'" the boy's father told TMZ.

Mikka is a relative of Austin - who was a former standout at West Virginia in the Big 12.
