- NBA star Kevin Durant has apologized for comments about his trip to India which he described as "20 years behind" the times and resembling an American slum. The Golden State Warrior player was in India recently to hold a series of basketball camps. On Friday he apologized in a tweet and said he is looking forward to going back. "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," Durant wrote. In an interview with The Athletic, Durant said he expected the comforts of an oil rich nation and he didn't think he would see muddy streets and people living in ramshackle homes around the Taj Mahal.
