Despite Durant’s slim frame, Kevin has posterized quite a few NBA players. The victims list includes shot blocker (and Shaqtin’ A Fool hall of famer) Javale McGee.
The game was close late in the 3rd between KD’s Oklahoma City Thunder and McGee’s Denver Nuggets in 2012. Durant had Andre Miller isolated at the top of the key. Instead of utilizing his height to shoot over the Denver point guard, KD showed off his quickness driving left. The equally long-armed McGee contested with his right arm but Durant was a half second quicker and threw down a two-handed slam. McGee keeled over and looked away when grounded, as Kevin death-stared him down.
The sneakers Kevin Durant wore for this highlight was the Nike KD 4. These shoes were a hit with sneakerheads as the glossy Hypefuse uppers served as a canvas for crazy prints like pearls, a weather-map, and Nerf-colored styling. The low-cut design carried over from the 3. This combines with the Zoom Air unit in the forefoot for a quick and responsive ride.
