Just a bunch of underprivileged people there and they want to learn how to play basketball. That s*** was really, really dope to me, said by the Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant who along with 3,459 children from the Reliance Foundation Junior NBA program in India entered the Guinness Book of World Records on Friday after holding the world’s largest basketball lesson in multiple venues.
Durant, the MVP of the 2017 NBA finals, said that India is a country which is 20 years far behind in terms of experience, knowledge and there is that bunch of underprivileged people who wants to learn basketball.He might have taken back so many memories from his visit to India but when asked about to share his experience, the NBA star vows to visit India again but he returned with a cultural shock. Talking about his visit to the seven wonders of the world, Durant said that it was an eye opener as he thought Taj Mahal would be a holy ground super protected, very clean but it was like s***, which made him remind of some neighbourhood he use to ride through as a kid. Mud in the middle of the street, stray dogs, half constructed houses and people living in them, no doors, no windows, no safety. Taj mahal was built 500 years ago and everyone comes here but my experience was an eye-opener.
Talking about his overall trip, Golden State Warriors star said he expected India to be similar to Dubai. “Um, it was a unique experience. I went with no expectation, no view on what it’s supposed to be like. I usually go to places where I at least have a view in my head. India, I’m thinking I’m going to be around palaces and royalty and gold — basically thought I was going to Dubai. Then when I landed there, I saw the culture and how they live and it was rough.”
After this shameful comment on India Kevin clarifies he vows to visit this country again.
