After attending and handing out the trophies at the Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA National Finals this past Sunday, Barnes had an exciting couple of days in Mumbai.

The Sacramento Kings' forward began Tuesday with some Indian delicacies - Samosa, Vada Pav and some Jalebis.

After spending sometime at the NBA India office in Mumbai doing an Instagram live for the Sacramento Kings, it was time to hit the road and travel to play Cricket with a few local kids.

That was just day one.

Early next morning, on Wednesday, Barnes was shooting hoops and having fun with Rannvijay Singh, a celebrity NBA fan and a member of the Saturday Morning Live cast.

On his way back from the basketball court, Barnes took the sights and sounds of the city with a ride in an Auto rickshaw.
