10 days and counting… With the NBA Playoff officially kicking off on April 19th, you can sense the mounting pressure in each of the games. This is especially true among players with their reputations on-the-line. For LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, it will be about whether or not they will secure their places among other basketball greats. But this postseason will be different for Kevin Durant, however. Already on track to beat even LeBron in terms of records, titles and awards, there are just two missing from his trophy wall – a NBA Finals MVP and a NBA Championship. In preparation for the arduous journey ahead, Nike Basketball created the KD 6 Elite Gold, a special KD signature edition featuring a full-length Nike Zoom cushioning unit, a first for the model. Including a “35-6” emblem in reference to Durant’s 35-6-6 achievement, support comes in the form of Nike’s innovative Flywire system, further reinforced by Kevlar aramid fibers for steel-like resiliency, similar to Durant’s resolve this season. Accentuated in metallic gold hardware, much like the LeBron 11 Elite Gold and Kobe 9 Elite Gold, the Nike KD 6 Elite Gold will be available through select Nike retailers and Nike online store starting on Friday, June 6th.
