Kevin Durant’s career has allowed him to embrace some newfound hobbies and passions over the last decade. As his basketball talents take him all over the world, Kevin has developed an affinity for photography, global travel, and other hobbies that he shares with his Nike compatriot Leo Chang. Today, Nike announces that KD will partake in a week-long tour in China to share the new KD 9 with his massive fanbase in Asia; with stops in Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Taipai, there’s no doubt that KD will be carrying his camera around with him to take some more shots for his personal portfolio.
