Kevin Durant responds to critics with Nike cupcake shoe
Nike has unveiled a new version of the Kevin Durant 10 shoes that seems to be a response to his haters.
On Friday, the “Red Velvet” version of the KDX shoe will go on sale on Nike’s website.
Here is Nike’s description of the shoe:
“With a style of play as smooth as velvet, KD is known for having the most fluid game in the game today. Effortlessly making defenders look helpless, always ready to cook his next victim. He dominates the game with unrivaled versatility, forever motivated by the sweet taste of victory. At the end of the day, winning is all that matters and anything else is just icing on the cake. The KDX ‘Red Velvet’ celebrates the smoothest player in the game and his undying quest for the sweet taste of victory.”
Sure, that’s one way to tie together the cupcake theme with Durant, but those who follow the NBA know there’s something else to the cupcake theme.
When Durant announced he was leaving the Thunder for the Warriors, Russell Westbrook took a shot at him with a cupcake photo. The Warriors later defended Durant by wearing cupcakes on gear after beating the Thunder.
Then after winning his first championship in June, Durant wore a cupcake hat. It’s obvious that this is his continued response to those who criticized him.
