Kevin Durant and James Harden went to great lengths for a practice session at Mykonos and will keep on training together during their stay in Greece.
The Brooklyn Nets superstars are on vacation at the Greek island, famous for attracting celebrities among many tourists every summer. This year’s visit was not the first for Durant nor Harden but was paired with a practice at the home court of the local team, as reported by Mykonos Post.
