Last week, it was Serge Ibaka who provided a mallgoer on a bike some help after a nasty fall. This week, even after a loss, Kevin Durant took some time out to help someone.

From the NBA's reddit.com page - a post entitled "Good Guy Kevin Durant: Sees you slip and fall. Stops what he's doing & takes you for X-Rays (true story)" submitted by mathan1234, who's story legitimacy was questioned at length:

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. ;)

Anyway, I just thought that was a cool story.


Seems like something KD, Ibaka or a number of Thunder players would do.
