Toronto Man Launches GoFundMe Page For Kevin Durant’s Charity
RAPTORS FAN – This Raptors fan initiated a GoFundMe page for the charity foundation of pro NBA player Kevin Durant from the Golden States Warriors.
The game is on between the two of the best basketball teams in the NBA finals. Currently, the two teams are vying for the 2019 NBA Finals championship.
A previous post reveals Kevin Durant after a recent incident that left him injured.
After his injury, a Toronto man has initiated a GoFundMe page that has raised nearly $30,000 that is set to be transferred to the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation.
The person behind the GoFundMe page – Hamzah Moin – claims he initiated the fundraising site to support the Warriors player after seeing the some Toronto Raptors fan reacted inappropriately with joy when Keven Durant got injured during the second quarter of the previous game.
Durant tore his Achilles last Monday night and had to go the hospital get his Achilles fixed via surgery last Wednesday.
The Raptors is taking the lead on the best-of-seven bout and is currently playing with the Warriors in Oakland.
Moin expressed his apology in a statement:
“On behalf of the level-headed and true fans of Raptor Nation – from Toronto to Vancouver to Iqaluit to St. John’s, and any fans living outside Canada: we wanted to say ‘sorry’.”
He apologized on behalf of some Raptors fans who reportedly cheered after knowing about Durant’s Achilles injury.
This is according to an article from News 5.
“We’re sorry that some fans of Raptor Nation at the Scotiabank arena, Jurassic Park, and in some bars/restaurants showing the game, displayed an ugly side of fandom when they cheered on the injury of Kevin Durant.”
He apparently upheld his moral uprightness despite being a fan of the opposing team, he also mentioned about cheering on another person’s injury saying “This isn’t cool. This isn’t right. This isn’t what I expect from fellow Canadians.”
That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
