Kevin Durant’s stardom is unlike any other. He doesn’t go for that over-the-top swagger or diva-like tendencies, but instead chooses to keep within his inner circles while playing at a small market franchise. In just 25 years, Durant’s made quite a name for himself in the sport of basketball, and he hasn’t even scratched the surface of his professional prime in the NBA. Brad Graham, a KD fanatic, went forward with The Backpack Baller – a 250-page book detailing KD’s quarter century on and off the court. What make’s Brad’s project so darn cool is that the book features over twenty pages solely dedicated to KD’s sneakers with Nike – everything from his signature line to the choice models he wore during International play.
The complete hard-cover costs $35, but Brad needs your help in making it happen. You can contribute to Brad’s Kickstarter campaign in various amounts, and a $35 contribution will get you one hardcover copy of the book! We’ve got an exclusive look at some of the sneaker pages from The Backpack Baller, so check it out below and be sure to show your support by visiting the Kickstarter page, following him on Twitter and Blog, and share with your friends if you’d like for this project to get completed.
