Phoenix Suns star Kevin Durant showed his support for Michael Jordan after the NBA legend recently helped open another medical clinic for uninsured and underinsured residents in his home state of North Carolina.

The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic is the third such clinic that Jordan and his mother, Deloris Jordan, have opened in North Carolina, and the newest clinic in Wilmington, North Carolina, was made possible by a $10 million donation from MJ:

In response to a video of Jordan giving a speech ahead of the opening of the clinic, KD praised both Jordan and his mother in the following post on X

The other two Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinics are located in Charlotte, and the new Wilmington location ensures that aid can be provided to even more patients in need across the state.

Jordan is widely regarded as the greatest basketball of all time, having won six NBA championships, six NBA Finals MVP award and five NBA MVP awards during his illustrious career with the Chicago Bulls.

He was able to parlay his on-court success and superstardom into greatness off the court as well, becoming the first former NBA player to achieve billionaire status.

That allowed Jordan to become owner of the Charlotte Hornets for a time, and it also gave him the ability to help the less fortunate.

Like Jordan, Durant is poised to go down as the all-time greats and is undoubtedly a future Hall of Famer.

In 16 NBA seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, Brooklyn Nets and Suns, KD is a 14-time All-Star, four-time scoring champion, two-time NBA champion, two-time NBA Finals MVP and one-time NBA MVP.

He continues to perform at a high level, as he averaged 27.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.0 assists this season in Phoenix.

Durant is also charitable in his own right, starting the Durant Family Foundation in 2013 to benefit at-risk youth, which is something he can continue to build upon long after his playing career is over, much like Jordan has.
