One day Kevin Durant will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, but today he accepted his selection into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. An honor that was presented to him by his teammate and good friend Russell Westbrook.
“I was just overwhelmed [when I found out last year],” Durant said. “At 26 years old to be told you’re a Hall of Famer at anything, any Hall of Fame at that age is pretty young. I felt pretty good, but I didn’t know how to feel. I feel like I can do a lot more. I feel like I’ve got a long ways to go, but it’s still a great honor and I’m just honored to be here. Happy to represent my family and where I come from as well. It’s an amazing day.”
Durant has done many great things for Oklahoma, including donating $1 million to the Oklahoma Red Cross in 2013 after the state was hit with tornadoes.
