Barring some absolutely bizarre circumstances over his Oklahoma City Thunder’s last 13 regular season games, Kevin Durant is set to capture his second consecutive NBA scoring title. And with Kobe Bryant not getting any younger plus each of the other four members of the current top five sharing a spot with one teammate, it’ll take an equally strange development (or maybe Monte Ellis shooting even more often) to see anything stand between KD and an MJ-like streak of PPG crowns. And while it’s premature to suggest his career arc is anything like Jordan’s, Durant is also enjoying the strongest year yet for his signature sneakers, a fact punctuated with an exclamation (or three) in the form in these new Nike Zoom KD III colorways. Two of the three make use of gradients along their side panels while the black pair goes for a carbon fiber inset, instead opting for an opalescent finish on the forefoot Flywire that has us wondering what other kinds of special sheens we could see come playoff time.
