The 6-9 forward of Golden State Warriors and this year’s Finals MVP Kevin Durant is soon coming to India.
And no this is not just an ordinary trip but he is going to coach the country’s top prospects at the NBA Academy India.
For those of you who don’t know who Kevin Durant is, he is like Virat Kohli, of NBA.
Kevin Durant is well-known for his passion for the game and love for the community. He will travel to New Delhi on 27 July and going to donate two new basketball courts to the Ramjas School, as part of the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation’s BUILD IT AND THEY WILL BALL Initiative.
Later, he is planned to teach players, at NBA Academy, different shooting, dribbling, passing and defensive drills.
The 3 time MVP will then conduct a basketball clinic which is going to be attended by thousands of players in metro cities like Kolkata, Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad, through a satellite link.
When asked Durant about how he feels about visiting India, he said “I’m excited to travel to India to help promote the game of basketball and meet the prospects at the NBA Academy India. I’ve wanted to visit India for a long time, and I can’t wait to experience the country’s unique culture and share my knowledge with the kids there.”
Well, Kevin, we are also thrilled to have you in India and I am pretty sure that some of the kids in that Academy would spend sleepless nights until they saw their MVP and one of the all time best.
I just hope you will meet your other fans outside the Academy as well. Share this article with other Durants fan and let them know their ideal is soon going to be in their country.
