Bernadette says it was hard waking her family up to come to the Oprah Show because they didn't want to leave the comfort of the first beds they can call their own!

Bernadette's boys were especially happy in their basketball-themed bedroom, which was made complete with a custom mural and signed basketballs from NBA superstars like LeBron James, Reggie Miller, Tim Duncan, Shaq, Yao Ming, Steve Nash, Carmello Anthony, Tracy McGrady and…Dwight's favorite player, Kevin Garnett!

Kevin Garnett sent a special message to the Robinson family and a big surprise for Oprah! Dwight delivered Kevin's letter to Oprah, which said:

"Dear Oprah,

When I saw all that you've done for [Bernadette's family] and the survivors of the Hurricane Katrina, I was inspired to log onto Oprah.com to see how I could help. So because of you, Oprah, I'm personally buying one
Katrina home from your registry every month for the next two years . That's 24 homes and $1.2 million for your Angel Network to help other families who need a place to live. Keep up the great work.

Your friend, Kevin Garnett"


"You are my friend, Kevin," Oprah exclaims. "Thank you!"
