Kevin Durant may no longer play for the Golden State Warriors, but he certainly made his mark in the Bay Area. Aside from the stellar on-court play - which included three All-Star selections, three All-NBA selections, two titles, and two NBA Finals MVPs in his three years - Durant was heavily involved in the community, with myriad philanthropic efforts.
His latest - and possibly final - involvement in the community is a beauty.
Durant announced that he and his business, Thirty Five Ventures, through his charity, the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation, had finished an outdoor basketball court in San Francisco. And as far as courts go, you can’t make one much prettier than this.

Well, if that isn’t about the most beautiful court I’ve ever seen, then I don’t know what is.
The court was designed by Apex One, an artist who describes themselves on Twitter as “A San Francisco native that loves art.” The post from Thirty Five Ventures thanks Airbnb co-founder Joe Gebbia for his “support and leadership.”
Durant’s Instagram posts notes a strong sentiment from the former MVP: “Always got love for the Bay.”
The next chapter in Durant’s illustrious career will begin across the country, with the Brooklyn Nets. But his legacy certainly lives strong in Northern California.
