Kevin Durant has been one of the most talked about players in the NBA right now. From his recent unveiling of the Nike KD 9, to him officially signing with the Golden State Warriors.
During an interview with Complex, the seven-time All-Star talked about his ninth signature shoe, the Nike KD 9, as well as discussing his aspiration to fill the shoes of Kobe Bryant now that he’s retired from the NBA.
“Now that Kobe is a retired player, I think next up hopefully I could step into where he was,” Durant says. “Cause he started the Flyknit, he started the high boxer boot that he had, he started all the innovation. So for me to step into his place, and kind of be the guy that they throw all the new stuff on–I’m looking forward to it.”
