Kevin Durant’s Infamous Backpack to Go on Sale

by May 19, 2011

The folks at Nike, who know a thing or two about taking advantage of a marketing opportunity, will soon start selling versions of the backpack Kevin Durant wears to seemingly every postgame press conference. The Oklahoman reports: “Everyone wants a piece of Kevin Durant these days. Soon, you can have one. Coming to a store near you — the KD backpack. The accessory that will eventually hit shelves as part of the Thunder superstar’s Nike KD III line has become all the rage during these playoffs. It’s not just that Durant wears the backpack to every postgame press conference. He also leaves it on the entire time. With all the straps buckled and tightened in front, he looks like he’s ready to hike across campus to geometry class. ‘People say they like it. People say they don’t,’ Durant said. ‘I’m going to stick with it.'”
