Kevin Durant All-Star Game Sneaker Retrospective
It didn’t take long for Kevin Durant to make his mark in the NBA. Upon entering the league with the Seattle Sonics, the second overall selection of the 2007 Draft proved he was one of the best scorers in the league by dropping 20 a game, and after a change in scenery from the Pac-Northwest to the Midwest in OKC, his scoring marks went up a quarter in his sophomore year. By his third season, Kevin Durant established himself as a shoo-in to the mid-season All-Star Game, and by the fourth, he became a permanent fixture in the Starting roster. As he embarks on a sixth appearance in All-Star Weekend (his fourth overall All-Star Game) this weekend, let’s take a look back at all the sneakers he’s worn during the star-studded affair.
Kevin Durant signed a contract with Nike upon entering the league, but his first signature shoe didn’t arrive immediately. Even when it did, the Zoom KD didn’t gain any real steam until the KD II, but with the low price-point, the Zoom KD line didn’t have that appeal like the higher-priced Kobe and LeBron did. The sudden outburst in popularity in the Nike Zoom KD IV established the KD line as a must-have item rather than a ‘cheaper’ alternative, and the excitement around the upcoming Nike KD V ‘All-Star’ is proof that Durant’s future with Nike is as bright as ever. If you’ve forgotten what he’s worn the in the past, begin this Retrospective feature below.
Kevin Durant is, and will continue to be, one of the premier players in the league for years to come. Barring injury, there seems to be no limit to his game and what he can do on the court. I am a die-hard Nuggets fan from Denver, but it's hard to hate on a guy with moves and game like that! I like to watch OKVC games for this reason alone, and with my DISH Hopper I can record ALL my Nuggets games AND OKC games. I can store 2,000 hours of TV on the Hopper, and with the new DISH Game Finder app, finding out-of-market games has never been easier. I'm a skinny white kid who working at DISH, with NO B-Ball game whatsoever, so I probably won't buy these shoes, but I can still root with the best of 'em. The DISH Game Finder app locates any games available to watch on TV, for all kinds of different sports. I use the app to locate teams and games by name, get up-to-the minute scores of individual games, schedule recordings and set reminders for upcoming games. It saves me a ton of time from having to look for every game individually, and lets me enjoy my sports a whole lot more.
