Easy Money: Kevin Durant Stays With Nike

kevin durant stays with nike Easy Money: Kevin Durant Stays With Nike

When the ball is in Nike’s court, expect a game-winning shot. A long tug-of-war battle between the Beaverton brand and Baltimore-based Under Armour finally came to a close when Kevin Durant publicly stated his allegiance to “the swoosh”, but arriving to a decision didn’t come so easy. Under Armour made waves with a massive contract that seemed too good to pass up, but Nike upped its original offer to nearly the same figures as laid out by UA and ultimately retained the superstar. Nike’s big offer accomplishes two things: it keeps KD with the brand, and it ensures its dominance in the basketball category by denying its competitor with such a huge asset. So what’s next for Nike and the KD? Expect new colorways of the KD 7 to be revealed (there’s already an “Easy Money” option coming on September 10th), larger distribution of the shoes and KD-branded apparel/accessories, and an eventual change in regime in the Nike Basketball hierarchy. Your thoughts on KD staying with Nike? Chime in below.

Nike LeBron 9 “Kentucky Wildcats” PE on eBay

There was a point in time this off-season when the Cleveland Cavaliers offered current Kentucky Coach John Calipari keys to the kingdom. Their reasoning? He was that close with LeBron James and would increase the chances that The King might return to Cleveland. While LeBron made his way to the shores of Lake Erie regardless of Calipari opting to stay in Kentucky, their mutual Nike connection should ensure Wildcat PEs in LeBron silhouettes for years to come. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the Swoosh’s marquee collegiate basketball programs always get first dibs on the latest Nike signature, and this Nike LeBron 9 PE is a testament to that longstanding tradition. The pair keeps that signature royal blue and white intact while the ‘UK’ logo gets a prominent feature on the tongue. What do you think? Grab more pictures after the click and pick this rare find via jonallon80 on eBay.

kevin durant staying with nike Nike Makes Larger Offer To Kevin Durant, May Keep Him For Another 10 Years

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Nike has countered Under Armour’s massive 10-year contract offer to Kevin Durant, and the Swoosh brand believes it is enough to keep Kevin Durant for the next ten years (and perhaps the rest of his career). Exact figures of Nike’s offer haven’t been disclosed, but it is certainly more than the initial $20 million-per-year offer and more than he will be paid as an NBA athlete. We’ll have more details for you as more info emerges, but for now, it looks like Kevin Durant will stay with Nike and more KD 7 colorway will be on the way.. Your thoughts? Stay tuned for the latest.
