Welcome back, KD. Kevin Durant has missed the past 19 games due to an MCL strain, but that didn’t stop the Warriors from rattling off a league best 13-game win streak in his absence. Now that the Dubs are back to full strength just in time for the playoffs, things are about to get downright hopeless for their competition out west. Nike Basketball welcomed back KD last night during the Warriors’ 123-101 win over the New Orleans Pelicans with this new Nike KD 9 Elite Welcome Back PE. The latest KD 9 Elite PE features an all royal upper with speckles of yellow thrown into the Flyknit base. A unique gradient Zoom midsole covers the inside components for a vibrant finish. Durant played 31 minutes and showed some signs of rust, shooting just 6-15 from the field, but expect him to be back to form in no time. What do you think of his latest exclusive?
