Yesterday, Kevin Durant posted the above photo on his IG at a get-together for a friend. Four things of note before leaving the masses to discuss amongst themselves.
1. Plenty has said about why KD should/should not leave Nike for Under Armour. The seemingly-imminent move to UA has also been the leading conspiracy theory as to why KD decided to withdraw from Team USA, which happens to be sponsored by Nike.
2. I see you with the subliminal pledge of allegiance to The Swoosh, KD.
3. Speaking of Team USA, is that Duke’s Quinn Cook? I think that’s Duke’s Quinn Cook. Putting one and one together, Cook’s coach is Mike Krzyzewski. The same Coach K who admitted he was “surprised” by the reigning MVP’s decision. As the 2007 Lil Wayne would say, “That ain’t got sh*t do with nothing, I just thought that I should mention.”
4. Look at those baby shots!
Update: As someone noted on Twitter, KD’s also wearing adidas pants so enter a third party into the arms race! Imagine Nike fanboys if he switched to the Stripes.
