The National Basketball Association and National Basketball Players Association announced today that they will contribute $1 million to support relief efforts in response to the destruction caused by the tornado in the Oklahoma City area.

The NBA and the Players Association will join forces with the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, and other disaster relief agencies that are mobilizing their resources to support the recovery and rebuilding efforts.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Thunder star Kevin Durant have each donated $1 million to the relief efforts, and several NBA teams, and current and former players are also contributing to aid in the recovery.

Players and team personnel of the Thunder, the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock, and the NBA D-League’s Tulsa 66ers will continue to provide local support, assisting in on-the-ground relief efforts in addition to the ongoing support by the NBA family.

Kudos to the NBA for reaching out to do what they can.
