Another saddening tragedy dawned on us after the events in Newtown, CT unfolded early yesterday morning. While it’s difficult to react appropriately to such an occurrence, NBA star Kevin Durant made sure that he had the victims in his thoughts and prayers by wearing his Nike KD V ‘Home’ with ‘Newtown, CT’ written on the upper of the shoe. In addition to Durant’s noble gesture, the entire NBA properly adjusted their pre-game schedules to reflect on the events with a moments of silence. On a night where sports was a distant second in terms of significance, Durant, the NBA, and the pro-sports community displayed unity that hopefully sends the right message to viewers and to the residents of Newtown, CT.

The Sneaker News staff sends our thoughts and condolences to the victims.
