On top of the media efforts , one-on-one interviews, and photo-shoots, Durant spent some time playing some ball with the local youth at Gaullaudet University as part of his community-building Skills Academy, where he revealed some of his most useful tricks on the court.

Nike Celebrates Kevin Durant’s First NBA MVP Award

kevin durant mvp Nike Celebrates Kevin Durants First NBA MVP Award

Kevin Durant’s winning pedigree was sensed early on in his career, but what leaves us in awe is that he’s established himself so early. By his third year in the NBA, he solidified himself as the single most dangerous scoring threat in the league.He proved himself to be an anchor of a ship that would head for Championship waters year in and year out. In 2012, his name was recognized on a global scale when he helped lead Team USA to gold. While individual accolades are nothing new to the OKC Thunder megastar, the one he just received today is truly the first step toward being recognized as one of the greatest players to ever touch a basketball.

Nike has been with KD since Day 1. The brand developed a unique point of view on a signature shoe by selling a superstar’s sneaker at a bargain price, and as we approach the end of the cycle for the immensely popular KD 6, you can plainly see the reflection of Durant’s rise to greatness through his shoes. The vision and planning between shoe and player were in sync (last year’s KD 6 launch event in Seat Pleasant being a perfect example of that synergy), and as Durant eventually becomes the uncontested elite player in the NBA, the Nike KD signature sneaker will unquestionably be the most popular sneaker on the planet. To celebrate KD’s achievement, Nike unveils this special edition t-shirt, but for those of you who are hungry for more KD 6 sneakers, not to worry – there’s a NIKEiD KD 6 “MVP” Option coming. Check out the shirt below and head to Nike.com to purchase your own.

kevin durant first nike kd all star pe 01 Kevin Durants First Nike KD All Star Shoe

It’s hard to believe that Kevin Durant didn’t make it to the Western Conferece All-Star team during his rookie season, but what’s more astonishing is the fact that KD had to sit out two years before playing on theSunday night show. The man who likes to refer to himself as “The Servant” did serve his time in the NBA’s rookie-sophomore game though, and today we get a refreshed look at his first official All-Star signature shoe – the Nike Zoom KD 1 that he wore during the 2009 Rookie Challenge in Phoenix. Featuring an almost-Creamsicle look of orange and navy, the shoe sports a star graphic on the medial side of the sneaker while the outer’s burnt orange contrasts with blue laces. Durant would go on to be MVP of that game thanks to 46 points in a flash of what was to come. Be sure to check out this rare Kevin Durant All-Star PE after the click and know that if you’re truly feeling this pair, you can grab them via caliuser1457 on eBay.

yoth nikeid kd 6 An On Feet Look at Kevin Durants NIKEiD KD 6 YOTH

Kevin Durant is a leading MVP candidate for precisely the same reason he’s leading the NBA in PPG: he’s simply scoring more than anybody else these days.  Actually, Durant’s streak of 30+ point games ended at a dozen with the Thunder’s visit to Brooklyn, but OKC did take the game by 25 after being up 30 at the end of 3.  In addition to dominating to the tune of plenty of garbage time rest, the spindly assassin showed off his ‘Year of the Horse’ NIKEiD KD 6.  You can see more of the detailed geometry pattern after the jump, and remember that the YOTH options for the KD 6 open up on NIKEiD coming up on Monday.
