Warriors

Raptors' fan goes above and beyond to give back to KD

TORONTO (KRON) -- During Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Toronto fans appeared to celebrate when Kevin Durant hit the floor. 

Warriors forward underwent an MRI Tuesday June 11, that confirmed he suffered a ruptured Achilles.  

Hamzah Moin, a Raptors' 'true' fan, took to social media to make a positive impact in Durant's life by starting a Go Fund Me page. 

The page states:

"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". 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. " 

Moin has set his goal to $25,000, raising up to two-thirds of his goal.  

Moin went on to say:

"Join me in sending our well-wishes to KD as he recovers. He's put his blood, sweat and tears in this beautiful sport. Let's give back to something he's passionate about - helping to enrich the lives of at-risk youth from low-income backgrounds through educational, athletic and social programs through the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation." 

The Golden State Warriors will face the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 at Oracle, Thursday at 6 p.m.
