STORY: Kevin Durant, recently signed by Golden State Warriors, is on a visit to Hong Kong and coached a gymnasium full of young players on Tuesday (July 12).
The free agent forward switched to the Warriors at the beginning of July after years with Oklahoma City Thunder. Durant is a four-time single-season scoring leader, and was the league’s most valued player 2013-2014.
“This is an exciting time right now, you know, it is a different part of my life right now to share it with you guys at the early stages, it is important for me,” he told the students at the beginning of the session before getting down to the coaching.
