Donated $1 million today to the Red Cross for OK tornado relief efforts. Wish the world had more positive people of means like this.

I think Athletes would get more respect off the court/field/whatever if they seemed to care like Durant does. I'm not saying if you don't donate that much you don't care, but a lot of Athletes don't seem to be willing to do something that great. Awesome gesture by Durant :tu

Awesome gesture by Durant :tuAgreed or even just be better people. Not a huge NFL guy, NCCA football is my thing, but I gained so much respect the last game of the NFL season last year for Adrien Peterson at the end of the Vikings v Packers game when he was asked how it felt to come just 9 yards short of breaking Dickersons record. Paraphrasing "9 yards? Thats it? We came here to win to get into the playoffs and we did that today as a team." Selfless...he was not even paying attention to himself to get the record for himself but rather to get his team into the playoffs. That is the epitome IMO of professional conduct.

I'm not a fan of any Vikings player, but I wanted him to bust that record to bits after coming off that killer injury. Close enough :tu

Good on Durant. Inspiring move. :tu

Hater. ;)

My least favorite Viking was Favre. Followed closely by Moss.
