This summer has given Warriors fans #ChinaKlay and #TahoeSteph — but is there another moniker to come?
Kevin Durant will visit India starting next week to coach some of the country’s top players and further empower the game’s growing popularity there, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.
“I’m excited to travel to India to help promote the game of basketball and meet the prospects at the NBA Academy India,” Durant told Haynes . “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.” Related Articles

Unlike Thompson and Curry, whose recent antics inspired the aforementioned hashtags , Durant is traveling for fully serious purposes.
KD will reportedly donate two new basketball courts to the Ramjas School in New Delhi as part of the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation. Then he’ll travel to the NBA Academy India in nearby Noida and coach prospects and assist in running a massive youth clinic, according to Haynes.
“We are thrilled to host 2017 Finals MVP Kevin Durant in India,” NBA India marketing director Yannick Colaco told Haynes. “Kevin is coming off an historic season with the Golden State Warriors. Having one of the very best players in our league interact with the basketball-playing youth of India will serve as great inspiration to the next generation of players here, especially the high-performing prospects at the NBA Academy India.”
Maybe #DelhiDurant will pop up on your Twitter feed before long.
