Kevin Durant returned to the NBA hardwood after being sidelined for a few games with a sprained ankle. Well, the Thunder managed to win both games in Durant’s absence and upon his return, the young squad won by a larger margin against the Minnesota Timberwolves. After a premature debut of the Nike Zoom KD III by Durant’s teammates Royal Ivey and D.J. White, Kevin Durant made his own debut of the Zoom KD III in the ‘Home’ colorway of white, black, blue, and orange. Dropping 28 points, grabbing 8 boards, dishing out 5, denying 3, and pick-pocketing 1, Kevin Durant didn’t miss a single step from his return from injury and set the stage for the Zoom KD III in the perfect way – by helping his team win. In fact, the early debut of his sig shoe might not have bothered Durant at all because he’s expressed a desire for the KD III to be worn around the league and not just by him.
