Nike: Kevin Durant Wins A Championship, And Silences His Critics

Kevin Durant has always been a favorite of mine, going back to his lone year at the University of Texas. And now, he has a ring (and a Finals MVP to go along with it). While I would have much rather preferred him to win it in Oklahoma City, it’s still cool that he now has a championship. Nike’s post-NBA Finals commercial shows all his critics…first he’s derided as soft and defensively-challenged, then when he moved to the Golden State Warriors, people called him a traitor. But now, he’s a champion, and the critics are silenced. It’s a pretty cool ad, supplemented by Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya.”
