Kevin Durant, the NBA Finals MVP, had some harsh things to say about India from his recent visit.
The Golden State Warriors star spoke about the cultural shock he experienced when he drove down to The Taj Mahal. "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 rules," he told The Athletic magazine.
"As I was driving up to the Taj Mahal, I thought that this would be holy ground, super protected, very very clean. And as I'm driving up, it's like, s***, this used to remind me of some neighborhoods I would ride through as a kid. Mud in the middle of the street, houses were not finished but there were people living in them. The cows in the street, stray dogs and then, boom, Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world," said Durant.
