Kevin Durant Gives 5-Year-Old Cancer Survivor A Pair Of His Game Shoes


This year is off to a flying start for 5-year-old Keaton Barron.

It was the first week of 2016, and he already beat cancer and planned a trip to Disney -- duh -- so all that was left to do was meet his hero, Kevin Durant.

Barron attended Monday night's Thunder game in Oklahoma City and held up a sign citing his two accomplishments and his yet-to-be-completed goal of meeting KD.

Well, KD saw Keaton's sign and made his way over to the young fan at halftime to autograph the sign and gift him the sneakers he wore for the Thunder's Christmas Day game against the Bulls.

Keaton, who officially beat cancer on December 27, wears a size 2.5 sneaker, but he has plans of wearing KD's size-18 kicks when he gets "bigger," ESPN reports.

Kevin Durant is the real MVP, indeed.
