Kevin Durant

KD needs to start wearing stuff like this like now...

KD needs to start wearing stuff like this like now…

Last week, Kevin Durant delivered one of the greatest sports awards speeches of all-time as years of hard work and sacrifice came to the forefront.  It was an emotional ride that allowed us to see a side of KD that we always suspected was there but came into more focus as he thanked his family and his teammates for getting him to where he is today. Thank goodness they managed to get past Memphis and the Clippers or else this speech would probably not have resonated (especially that Russell Westbrook part) as much.

To celebrate the occasion, Nike has put together a special “MVP” edition of the Nike KD 6.  But unlike previous MVP tribute sneakers, Nike decided to give the People’s Champ and his legion of fans to do it their way by placing the graphic up on NIKEiD so that they can make their own stylized KD 6 “MVP” sneaker.  It’s both a genius and curious decision on Nike’s part because now anybody that wants an “MVP” KD 6 and is willing to pay the NIKEiD premium can get it and they don’t have to worry about potential drama of a limited release, but at the same time, was Nike not ready to release a Nike KD 6 “MVP” shoe because they figured LeBron James would win a third-straight MVP?

But enough about speculation.  We’ve put together some custom Nike KD 6 “MVP” iD creations for you to check out and totally scrutinize.  Let us know what you think about these designs in the comments below.

Two-time golf major winner Bubba Watson was in attendance for Game 6 between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Watson was just one of several notable personalities in the stands, including Rihanna, Tony Romo (who may or may not have cost the Clippers the series simply by being there according to Twitter), Matt Damon, Billy Crystal and Jack Nicholson.  What Watson can boast over those other celebs is that he’s the only one who went home with a pair of Kevin Durant’s game-worn Nike KD 6 kicks.

It appears that Durant and Watson have struck up quite the friendship over social media  and thus the connection between the two (Watson is also pals with LeBron James).  After the game, the two met up and Durant gave Watson his kicks, which you know is clearly Durant’s because of the various messages and Bible verses he writes on them, including Ephesians 3:20.

For all the golfers out there, how would you like to see Durant on the golf course splitting the fairway with a Nike KD 6 golf shoe?
