It’s understood in the outdoor courts of summer league that your reputation is only as good as your nickname. That’s the point brought home by the new Foot Locker commercial starring Kevin Durant and Hannibal Buress. Entitled “Nicknames,” the clip showcases Buress’ skills as the designated emcee, firing up the crowd with pity lines like “Who’s going to score the most points? That’s the team that’s going to win.” He goes on to introduce the assorted players — each decked out in fresh gear from Nike‘s KD VI collection — by assigning nicknames like “Young Threads” (“How’s the juice cleanse going?” he asks the portly basketballer). Unfortunately the comic falters when he gives the call to the man of the hour, causing Durant to exit the park in a huff. Check out the video below, as well as close-up look at the Nike KD VI collection, launching at Foot Locker retail locations and online starting this Saturday, August 17th.
