While there's little to no live sports right now due to the coronavirus pandemic, athletes and television networks around the world are doing their best to keep fans entertained. The most recent form coming from Brooklyn Nets star, and Prince George’s County native, Kevin Durant.
Durant and Showtime teamed up to produce the documentary, Basketball Country: In The Water, which highlights Durant's hometown of Prince George’s County, Md. which has delivered more professional basketball players in the past 20 years than any other area. Athletes like Victor Oladipo, Quinn Cook, Markelle Fultz, Michael Beasley, and Marissa Coleman began their basketball careers in PG County.
Durant, alongside Oladipo and Cook, co-produced the doc which is set to premiere Friday, May 15th, at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
“It’s a place that builds character, that doesn’t allow you to back down from anything,” Jeff Green told NBC Sports Washinton's Chris Miller on the latest episode of the Wizards Talk podcast.
“People don’t understand because it’s a small hub. But only people that get recognized are from Chicago, LA, New York. We’re put on the back burner, but people don’t realize how much talent comes from PG County”.
