Half Smokes Heroes: Eric Fehr's Durant-like Humility

Each weekend Half Smokes Heroes will pay some respect to a group or individual flying under the radar who has gone above and beyond the call of duty during the week.

In the wake of the "The Decision" many contrasted the media spectacle that LeBron James created when he announced he was joining the Miami Heat during a one-hour special on ESPN, while Kevin Durant humbly announced he was signing an extension with the Thunder...on Twitter

↵

But if we're truly impressed with how Durant handled the announcement of his contract decision, then we also have to give proper respect to Eric Fehr, who also announced his new deal in less than 140 characters this week

For helping to be a part of a revolution of players announcing their new contracts on Twitter, we give Eric Fehr this week's Half Smokes Heroes award. But don't worry Eric, you don't have to tweet about this one.
