Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant is trying to be more than just an MVP on the court. Apparently, Durant would like to be one in his old neighborhood, too.

Durant returned to his home Wednesday in Prince George's County, Maryland, for the opening of an after-school facility bearing his name. The two-time defending champion Warriors visit the Washington Wizards on Thursday night.

Durant gave a $10 million endowment to College Track at The Durant Center. It promises to offer scholarships, tutoring and financial support to help area children get into and graduate from college.
