Kevin Durant Joins Roc Nation Sports

kevin durant roc nation jay z Kevin Durant Joins Roc Nation Sports

Jay-Z’s last venture into the world or professional sports – specifically as a part owner of the New Jersey Nets – seemed to have…bored him to some degree. Not even a year after his Nets switched over from Jersey to Brooklyn, Jay-Z has decided to move on to the world of talent management as he opens up Roc Nation Sports. Since its opening, Jay-Z has managed to sign some notable professional athletes like Victor Cruz, Robinson Cano, Geno Smith, ¬†and women’s basketball phenom Skylar Diggins, but today the fast-growing and trendy firm has just added Kevin Durant, who is without question one of the best players in the NBA and gives Roc Nation even more credibility in the industry.

It’s been just a few hours since Durant’s inked a deal with Jay-Z’s crew, but what could this mean for the future of Kevin Durant the brand? Jay-Z is one of the shrewdest pop-culture marketing strategists of our generation, so that could spell big, big bucks for Durant and his personal business endeavors off-the-court. For his sports-related involvements, namely his signature shoes with Nike, the “cool factor” should definitely give him a nice boost, which comes at a perfect time seeing that the Nike KD 6 is ready to launch in about two weeks. Durant’s signing also has us wondering about the future of Roc Nation in the NBA and if Jay-Z’s friendship with LeBron could eventually become a professional partnership in the future. Your thoughts on KD joining Roc Nation? Does his affiliation with HOV do anything for his signature shoe line or anything else KD puts his name on? Let us know in the comments below.

Jay-Z continues to show his support for the Reebok return. Last time around it was the the then just-released Reebok Kamikaze II, and this time around he’s skipping ahead in the release date timeline with a pair of the Reebok Shaq Attaq. This quick paparrazi snap unfortunately obscures the sneakers to a good degree, but there’s no doubt given the forefoot view that that is indeed said Shaq model on feet. Stay tuned to see if Jay-Z keeps his Reebok trend going and let us know in the comments if you’re excited for the Shaq Attaq return.

Jay-Z in Reebok Kamikaze II

jay z in reebok kamikaze ii Jay Z in Reebok Kamikaze II

Jay-Z in Reeboks? Long before he stayed in Yeezys, LeBrons, and the like, that wasn’t such an uncommon site. You’ll remember that just ten years ago Jay-Z was a Reebok company man thanks to his wildly popular S. Carter collection (admit it, you bought a pair). For whatever reason, he’s back on the bandwagon, spotted here in the just released Reebok Kamikaze II. The Shawn Kemp pair isn’t too far away from the Brooklyn Nets color combo, so maybe we’ll even see them courtside sometime soon. Continue reading for the shots of Jay-Z in the Reebok Kamikaze II and stay tuned to see if Jigga continues to diversify in 2013.

Most of us would no doubt go back and snap up plenty of old grails in terms of sneakers if we ever made it to the financial level that Jay-Z is currently at. Jigga has other things to worry about at the moment though, like that epic string of Barclays Center concerts and keeping Beyonce and Baby Blue happy. So hopefully you can forgive him for varsity red on his Air Jordan VI’s in this epic shot, taken atop the roof of 560 State St. (you remember that Empire State of Mind lyric right?) with an incredible view of the Brooklyn Nets’ new home. Click through for the full shot and stay tuned to see if Jay rocks more J’s as the Barclays Opening bonanza continues.
