Global Game: A History of Kevin Durant’s Global Kicks
This Saturday, Nike Basketball will place a spotlight on Kevin Durant’s love for international travel and his success on the global platform of the sport. Ever since joining the team at Nike Basketball, he’s had the opportunity to travel the world and connect with his fans around the globe, and as a key member of Team USA Basketball, he’s showcased his hoops talent on the biggest stages known to the game. As Durant approaches the 2014 FIBA World Cup, we’ve taken a look back at some of the notable sneakers tied to KD’s globe-trotting tendencies.
It all started back in 2007 when KD tried out for the FIBA roster. Although he didn’t make the cut (The coaches wanted more experience), Durant would instantly dominate the global game in 2010 and again in the 2012 London Olympics, and for the upcoming FIBA games, KD will undoubtedly be the cornerstone to the USA roster that looks to grab Gold once more. Take a walk back with us through KD’s international sneakers and stay tuned for more updates as we approach the FIBA World Cup in a few weeks!
