Did Nike Accidentally Reveal That KD Is Staying With The Warriors Next Season?


On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress declared the thirteen American colonies as a new nation–the United States of America–and no longer part of the British Empire. The day would become an American holiday; a day of pride, remembrance, and celebration across the great nation. Fireworks bursting in front of the night sky while sparklers are glaring in front of a young child’s immense grin are common images thought upon for the Fourth of July. But, in 2016, it was way different. An Independence Day decision made by one of the NBA’s greatest players would send thousands of Oklahoma City Thunder fans–as well as NBA fans in general–into a tizzy, upsettingly remembering the news they heard that morning.

The city’s most beloved son, Kevin Durant had decided to part ways with the team to join forces with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green in Golden State with the Warriors.

Three years, and two Championships (maybe three after this season) later, Kevin Durant was expected to leave this superteam again and possibly join the New York Knicks.

But Nike may now have accidentally revealed that Durant will be staying in the Bay Area after all. There is a shirt for sale on Nike’s website that has a list of every city that Durant has played in since high school. At the end of the list, Oakland is followed by San Francisco, where the Warriors will be located from the start of the next season.
