Either way this plays out, this is the pose KD is making once he sees the raise in his endorsement contract….

According to friend of sneakerheads, ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Kevin Durant was is at Under Armour HQ today.  If you haven’t been listening to the news this summer, Durant’s contract with Nike recently  expired and the reigning NBA MVP is exploring his options.  It has been widely reported that Under Armour is prepared to offer Durant as much $325 million and shares in the company.

Here was Rovell’s first tweet about the meeting earlier today:

And this came over an hour later:

Could Durant staying longer mean doom and gloom for you Nike fans who want KD to stay? Is the suspense forcing Nike to up their offer?  The plot thickens…

One of the perks of attending a star athlete’s summertime camp is all of the unexpected (yet kinda expected at the same time) free swag that you will get from the camp’s major sponsors. Not surprisingly, the bigger the name of the athlete, the better that gift bag is going to be.  In the case of Kevin Durant’s recent Skills Academy, those that were part of the camp received a pair of the Nike KD 7 “35K Degrees”.  But it’s not just any ordinary “35K Degrees” colorway that you can buy it stores, mind you, because this special version that has the KD Skills Academy logo on the inside of the shoe’s tongue and… well, actually that’s it unless you want to count the “promo” on the shoe’s tag.

For $1,499.99 (or best offer), you too can own this that has a special graphic printed on a part of the shoe that will never be visible to anybody in public that isn’t a total creeper.  If you thought the Air Jordan 4 “Quai 54″ was silly, this might take the cake.
