Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant unveiled a new basketball court at North Highland Elementary School in Oklahoma City on Monday.
The outdoor court is the first North American court launched under the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation’s BUILD IT AND THEY WILL BALL Courts Renovation Initiative.

Durant and his foundation will launch completely new and renovated basketball courts to inspire and motivate young athletes across the world. The initiative furthers the mission of the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation to enrich the lives of youth from low-income backgrounds through various educational and athletic programs.

"One day, I was reminiscing and I felt that being outdoors molded me into the person I am, the player I am and I wanted everyone feel the same thing I did. I've been in the NBA going on nine years, and I still get overwhelmed by things like this. I never dreamed about this as a kid, and I'm just excited to get the opportunity." ~~ Kevin Durant
