Kevin Durant delivers pizzas to fans in Minneapolis hotel

A surprise of a lifetime for a couple of kids from Minnesota.

After helping the Warriors topple the Timberwolves last week, Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant delivered some pizzas to a couple of kids in a Minneapolis hotel. 

Durant scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the Warriors' 117-107 win over the Wolves on March 19, and then he offered to deliver the pizzas to Tom Mount's son, cousin and nephew. 

"The coolest thing just happened after the Warriors/Wolves game tonight," said Mount in a Facebook post. "I went to the lobby to pick up Dominos Pizza and then held the elevator for a few guys coming around the corner. One of them happened to be Kevin Durant! 

"I talked to him in the elevator and told him that my son isn’t going to believe that he was in the elevator with me and is going to wish he had came down with me now.

"His friends were going to take a picture of us so I could prove it to him, and then he offered to deliver the pizza to the room, which of course I said yes to."

They caught the moment on video and it's since been shared on SportsCenter and is still gaining some viral momentum. 

"What a great guy to take the time out of his night to make this a memory we will never forget," said Mount. 

According to the Brainerd Dispatch, the foursome from Crosby were in Minneapolis to watch the Wolves play that night and then stick around for boys' high school basketball tournament at Target Center the next day.
