MANILA--The champ is coming back!

Two-time NBA champion and Finals MVP Kevin Durant will be heading to the Philippines for the first time after seven years next Sunday, his first as a Nike endorser.

“We are thrilled to have Kevin Durant with us this time around for the first time ever in Manila. Fresh off a recent amazing season, this is an opportune moment to welcome and celebrate his journey of hard work and perseverance, which brings him to where he is today, with all aspiring Filipino ballers,” said Jino Ferrer, Nike Philippines' marketing manager. “We hope he will also be able to feel and experience the enthusiasm of the Filipinos’ puso, where basketball lies at the heart of the nation.”

His Philippine tour will begin with a meet-and-greet session with fans at the Nike Park store in Taguig at 12:30 p.m.

He himself will also grace the official launch of the Nike KD 11 Just KD colorway.

He will then give insights to the participants of the KD Nike Hyper Court All-Star Challenge at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
