On the cusp of the 2014 – 2015 NBA season, the Oklahoma City Thunder is seemingly lost in the narrative shuffle, but in reality the team is definitely one to watch. The upcoming season will be something of a referendum on the franchises’s future, and the focal point for the team will naturally land on Kevin Durant. Meanwhile, no. 35 will look to his on-court heroes for inspiration, two of which are celebrated on this upcoming Nike KD8. The “Vinary” portmanteau and clash of green and purple colors are the clues that the two idols are Larry Bird and Vince Carter, whose offensive skills act as inspiration for Durant. The kicks are set to launch in stores and Nike.com on October 1.
