    Kevin Durant helps NBA break Guinness World Record in India

    Kevin Durant.
    It seems as though 2017 is the year which Kevin Durant breaks records on and off of the basketball court.
    On his way to becoming the Finals MVP and helping the Golden State Warriors defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 in the series, Durant scored 30 points or more in each of the five games, becoming the first player in NBA history to do so across the Finals.
    Enjoying his first offseason with a championship to his name, the Warriors star has traveled to India to help the NBA expand in that region.
    During his time in the country which is home to 1.3 billion people, Durant took part in a camp in New Delhi, where he helped set a Guinness world record Friday for the largest basketball lesson in history.
    3,459 participants across multiple venues took part in the lesson earlier this week. The NBA Finals MVP met young players at the NBA Academy, with hundreds more joining by satellite from four other cities across the country.

    It seems to be that following a successful championship win last season, wherever Durant goes, he goes big or goes home, and once again, he has gone big in style.
    Following a successful season with Golden State, the 28-year-old showed just how much of a team player he is by signing for less money than what he could have been given if he went elsewhere in the NBA.
    Durant did this in order to allow the Warriors to have enough salary cap space to keep their core roster intact and add free agents. He ended up signing a two year, $51.25 million deal with the team, which includes $51.25 million guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $25.625 million.
    Now Golden State has the potential to continue their dominance in the Western Conference with their team intact despite the improvements to other teams in the conference such as the Houston Rockets and the Oklahoma City Thunder. They have the potential to break many more records, which is something Durant is getting used to.
