Fan sends Warriors flowers as apology for Canada's Kevin Durant injury cheers

Fan sends Warriors flowers as apology for Canada's Kevin Durant injury cheers

When Kevin Durant hit the ground clutching his lower right leg during the second quarter Monday night, those watching NBA Finals Game 5 held their breath. It later was revealed to be an Achilles injury, although exact details remain unknown.

While Durant was being escorted off the Scotiabank Arena court and into the Warriors' locker room, it appeared some Toronto Raptors fans began to cheer in celebration -- an act DeMarcus Cousins called trashy. It was a bad reflection on a fan base that, until then, hadn't been known for being negative at all.

However, one anonymous fan wanted to make sure the cheering didn't leave a bad impression of Canada as a whole, and sent this floral display to the Warriors' offices to apologize "on behalf of Canada." The arrangement also had a ribbon that read "Canada is sorry KD" placed across it.

That's not only classy, but this individual took responsibility for an entire fan base, and made sure Durant and others didn't think low of them. You can't help but smile about the gesture.

Klay Thompson posts ACL rehab picture with bulldog Rocco by his side

Klay Thompson loves his dog Rocco, and Rocco loves him back.

The five-time NBA All-Star and the English bulldog are inseparable:

Klay underwent surgery on his torn left ACL on July 2, and is expected to return within five to seven months.

Perhaps he'll be back sooner if Rocco has some magic healing powers?

"Thought he'd be a good dog for a young single man," Klay told Ros Gold-Onwude a couple years ago (watch the video above). "I don't feel like his father. More like homies, you know? He's my boy. He's like my good friend.

"He could either chill or be energetic. That's what I like about him. Goes with the flow. He's all-around a versatile dog."

We hope you enjoyed this hard-hitting news story.

Steph Curry and daughters Riley, Ryan drive around singing 'Hamilton'

I know what you're thinking ... Is there anything Steph Curry can't do?

At this point, if there is a list of those things, it has to be relatively short, right? Perhaps non-existent. Today, I found out the guy knows the lyrics from the musical "Hamilton."

Of course he does.

And so do his daughters, Riley and Ryan:

The members of the Curry family drove around singing "You'll Be Back," and finished it off with some surprise ice cream.

And yes, I couldn't believe how fast little Riley is growing up either. She's come a long way since stealing the show during press conferences.

Steph said on his YouTube page they sing this song quite a bit, but it's the first time they've captured it on camera.
