In the midst of being in the NBA playoffs, Kevin Durant still finds time to give back to the community and the youth. He recently announced to 4 students with high aspirations and goals that were recognized by the Boys & Girls Club;s "Youth of the Year", that he would pay for their 1st year of college!
In an interview done by Bleacher Report, Durant's teammate Quinn Cook (who is also from KD's hometown of Washington D.C.), talked highly of KD saying,
"It means a lot to the community," he said. "It's not just the amount of money that he donated. It's the constant support that he gives to the kids. He's always back, showing his face."
He went on to say that,
"He's like a superhero—on and off the court—to the kids back home."
