Kevin Durant’s long arms combines with his sense of balance for a silky smooth game. This ability was on display in a post-Christmas game against the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2011.
Durant was open for a 3 after a pin-down play late in the 3rd quarter, but KD opted to drive. After hard dribbles, Durant spun past Kevin Love who got stuck in cement. The Slim Reaper than jumped to catch Darko Milicic going vertical to contest. In one motion, KD faked up and reached his long right arm to scoop a layup beside Darko for the easy two.
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.
