Here is another feel good story to put a smile on your face today.
This past Monday a young 5-year old Thunder fan by the name of Keaton Barron attended the OKC vs Sacramento Kings game thanks to his parents. Keaton recently completed his final round of chemotherapy, the last in a victorious battle against leukemia. It turns out that Keaton is a huge Kevin Durant (who isn’t right?) and he took a unique sign to the game. The sign read “Beat Cancer – Check”, “Plan Trip To Disney – Check”, and the final thing on the list was “Meet KD” but it had no check mark next to it.
Kevin Durant and the Thunder decided to do something about that and young Keaton got the opportunity to meet KD at halftime and he was even gifted the game-worn Nike KD 8 Christmas sneakers that Durant wore on Christmas Day against the Bulls. Hopefully Keaton grows tall enough to be able to wear those size 18s. Even if he doesn’t they’ll make for a great conversation piece in his house when he gets older. We salute you KD!
