Kevin Durant is one of the NBA’s biggest superstars, and it’s clear his popularity extends well beyond the U.S. borders.

The Oklahoma City Thunder scoring machine is currently on a European tour with Nike to promote the KD 8, and No. 35 attracted an absolutely gargantuan audience during his stop in Madrid.

“I do the best I can to inspire the youth,” the six-time All-Star said before the crowd broke into a “Kevin Durant!” chant.

Durant looked pretty humbled by the experience.

And for a guy who sells out arenas every night, that’s saying something.
