Dwyane Wade Sends Thoughts and Prayers to Kevin Durant After Horrible Tragedy

Kevin Durant and His Brother

The NBA is a brotherhood, and Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade sent his prayers to Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant after the 2014 MVP lost his adopted brother in a tragedy on Thursday.

Clifford Dixon, who Durant considered his adopted brother, was fatally shot outside a metro Atlanta bar early Thursday, Chamblee police confirmed in a release.

According to the police report, Dixon arrived to the SL Lounge on Buford Highway for his birthday party before he was shot multiples in the parking lot. The 32-year-old was pronounced dead at Grady Hospital.

Durant, 30, has already had a very tough 2018-19 season. Although Durant and the Warriors are coming off back-to-back championships, the veteran’s year has been marred by a public tussle with teammate Draymond Green, free agency rumors, and now, the death of his close relative.

The two-time champion is averaging 27.2 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game this season.
