Marcin Gortat was posterized for the second time in his career at the hands of Kevin Durant in a 2015 matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Washington Wizards.
The play started with Durant setting a quick pick for Thunder teammate Russell Westbrook. Before contact, KD slipped the screen and rolled to the corner. Russ sent a fast pass to Durant who squared up for the midrange jumper. Gortat looked to contest but was caught on his heels when Kevin ran toward the rim. Marcin recovered but Durant backed him toward the rim and elevated for the right-handed poster dunk in Gortat’s grill. Marcin involuntarily bobbed his mohawk back and forth as if to say “he got me.”
The sneakers Kevin Durant laced up for this highlight was the Nike KD 6. This is one of the lowest-cut sneakers in the KD line. The collar along with the asymmetrical lacing drew visual comparisons to soccer cleats. What carried over from the KD 5 was the heel Air and forefoot Zoom Air set up for added impact protection and responsiveness. A Hyperfuse upper featured Flywire strands embedded into the plastic material. This provided durability as well as added lockdown for a 1-to-1 fit.
