My remarks were taken out of context, said Golden State Warriors player Kevin Durant while clarifying on his views which the player shared about his recent visit to India that did not went well with the people in the country.
Kevin Durant, who said that he was pissed over the response on his comments made by him on his India trip experience and mentioned that it was his fault, should have worded them better.
Speaking about his visit to India for a promotional trip to the country for the NBA, Kevin Durant said, “It’s a country that’s 20 years behind in terms of knowledge and experience. You see cows in the street, monkeys running around everywhere, hundreds of people on the side of the road, a million cars and no traffic violations. Just a bunch of underprivileged people there and they want to learn how to play basketball. That s— was really, really dope to me.” Kevin Durant said this to The Athletic in an interview.
However, the NBA player after receiving a critical response on his views said that he only spoke about the difference between his imagination and reality.
Later, Kevin Durant took to his twitter account and clarified his view saying, “Sorry that my comments about India were taken out of context, I’m grateful for the time I’ve got to spend there and I’m really pissed about how my comments came off, that’s my fault, should’ve worded that better.”
“I spoke about the difference between my imagination and reality there in Delhi and about where the game is compared to the rest of the world. No offense from this side, I’m coming back out there for more camps and cool s***. Sorry…” Durant added.
